Since 2016, Ocean Heroes has improved the wellbeing of over four thousand children on the Autism spectrum to enjoy the thrill and wonder of surfing in a supportive and safe environment.
Run almost entirely by volunteers, over 60 volunteers are required each month to support over 120 kids and their families at their public events with additional volunteers required for their one on one private surf experiences. With plans to resume events interstate, Ocean Heroes was looking for a solution to help engage and streamline their volunteer management.
“Our volunteers are the lifeblood of Ocean Heroes. Without them, we simply wouldn’t exist” Said Sam Moyle, Co Founder of Ocean Heroes.
“We’ve been looking for a solution like Rosterfy for a long time. Ensuring that our volunteers are provided with a dedicated program that will not only streamline processes for registration and scheduling but that also engages and rewards is really important for our next phase of growth. We can’t wait to see Rosterfy in action and are confident that our volunteers will love it.” Sam said.
Having previously managed their volunteer program through spreadsheets and online groups, Ocean Heroes will utilise Rosterfy to provide a centralised end to end solution for their volunteers around the country. In particular they are excited to implement an incentive program that rewards their volunteers for their time in exchange for hours volunteered.
Shannan Gove, Co Founder of Rosterfy said, ”Organisations like Ocean Heroes are an incredible resource to the community. We are increasingly seeing more and more non profits investing in technology to not only drive operational efficiency but equally importantly to give back through an engaging system, which drives engagement and retention.”
With plans to commence using Rosterfy at the end of the month, Ocean Heroes aims to grow their volunteer database and onboard their existing volunteers and strengthen their incredible community of volunteers,
