Once you start reviewing applications, you might find that an applicant isn't a good fit for the project or that you simply prefer to work with one of your other applicants. No problem! Just click Pass on their application so they know to look for other volunteer opportunities. 

When you pass on a volunteer, we ask you for some information to better understand why they weren't the right fit- this helps us further improve our algorithms and better support you in the matching process. 

Don't worry- this information does not get sent to the volunteer. Instead, the volunteer receives a very kind automated email from Catchafire explaining that they were not selected for your particular project. 

Pro-tip: Even if you only have one application, if you know the volunteer isn't a good fit, please pass on them. Promptly passing on an application increases their chances of working with another nonprofit in our community.
