Community Volunteer Opportunities Matchmaker
In addition to faculty/research volunteer opportunities, Duke manages a community outreach program with the local Durham community. This project will define a technology platform to combine all volunteer opportunities for the Duke community (students, faculty, staff, etc.) and provide an intelligent match-making tool that will pair volunteers with opportunities, based on their interests, expertise, and availability.

Connecting Volunteers with Opportunities at Duke and in Durham: The Bulletin
The Bulletin is a web application that serves as a platform to connect volunteers to volunteer opportunities. Its users include Duke and the surrounding community (students, faculty, staff, and Durham community members), volunteer organizations, and administrators from the Duke Office of Durham and Community Affairs. Core functionalities include filtering opportunities, signing up for opportunities, hour logging, notifications/email integration, and tracking statistics.
