What is Volgistics?Volgistics.gif

Volgistics is the electronic platform Cabrillo National Monument Volunteers-In-Park (CABR VIP) program uses to manage volunteer assignments, schedule shifts, and track work accrued.

What can a volunteer do on Volgistics?

A volunteer can sign up for work shifts, document training and continuing education opportunities attended, and record volunteer hours.

How is Volgistics important to the volunteer program?

The Volgistics platform allows us to track work assignments and to document the VIP hours attributed to each project. At the end of the NPS fiscal year (October) a detailed report is written on the CABR VIP program. Financial support from NPS for the CABR VIP program is based on the amount of volunteer hours recorded at the park. This financial support helps pay for uniforms, appreciation items, training and other CABR VIP events and infrastructure projects.

It is also important to know how many volunteer hours are contributed by VIPs and translate that into an hourly rate. We convert hours based on a nationally set hourly rate to allow management to see a monetary figure associated with volunteerism. It allows the park to value the contributions of the many talented individuals who answer the call to volunteer. With this information, management can see more clearly the true value of donated time and talents. By logging your hours into Volgistics, you give us a physical record of how much we depend on our wonderful volunteers here at Cabrillo National Monument.

How do I get started?

Once you sign up as a volunteer you will receive an email with a password to log into Volgistics. Please make sure all information is accurate and current (especially emergency contact information).

There are a couple ways to access the login screen for Volgistics:
