World Scouting selects Rosterfy as its Volunteer Management Solution

With over 5 million adult volunteers actively participating in more than 1 million communities globally, Scouting is committed to empowering young people through educational initiatives, events, and activities.

The World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM), one of the world's largest volunteer-based and volunteer-led youth movements, has selected Rosterfy as its global volunteer management solution. This collaboration marks a significant step forward in optimising volunteer engagement and enhancing the delivery of Scouting’s volunteer programme worldwide.

Active in nearly every country and engaging more than 57 million people and volunteers worldwide, WOSM is the largest international organisation for Scouting and recognises over 170 National Scout Organizations as its members. 

Overview of Scouting 

With over 5 million adult volunteers actively participating in more than 1 million communities globally, Scouting is committed to empowering young people through educational initiatives, events, and activities. The selection of Rosterfy as the preferred volunteer management solution underscores WOSM’s commitment to streamlining and centralising operations and maximising the impact of its volunteer workforce.

"Volunteers are the backbone of Scouting, and their contributions are indispensable in shaping the lives of millions of young people worldwide," said Jorge Cuzquen, Manager, Adult & Young Adult Development, WOSM. "By partnering with Rosterfy, we are excited to leverage their innovative technology to further empower our volunteers, streamline administrative processes, and ultimately enhance the Scouting experience for both volunteers and youth members."

Having previously used different systems and multiple spreadsheets to manage their global volunteer program, WOSM made the decision to adopt Rosterfy to streamline operations across five main areas.

Centralised volunteer management solution 

“First and foremost, the thing that attracted us to Rosterfy was the ability to provide our volunteers with a consistent and engaging experience, while taking the burden out of administrative processes. With 25 administrators operating multiple volunteer programs in 73 different countries and 18 different time zones, we were struggling with creating a consistent volunteer experience,” Jorge said.

Streamline operations with automations

“With 70% of our time spent simply screening and scheduling volunteers there wasn’t much time for anything else. 

With Rosterfy as our single source of truth, our administrators will have the tools that they need to effectively recruit, screen, schedule and manage their volunteers day in and day out,” Jorge said.

Providing volunteers with an engaging and personalised experience

“It was also really important to us to have a system that allowed us to show our volunteers the respect that they deserved. From receiving regular communications, to tracking their contributions and rewarding them for their time, Rosterfy is going to enable Scouts to deliver a really engaging and personalised experience for our volunteers.” Jorge continued. 

Delivering on our value of ‘diversity and inclusion’

“For Scouts, it is so important to live and breathe our values and that includes diversity and inclusion. Previously we were really struggling to quantify our performance, having to pull multiple spreadsheets and sieve through data one by one to find the information we needed. With Rosterfy, we can build this into our data capture and reporting.

They also have some great integrations with accessibility providers, including Userway and the fact that they’re available in 9 different languages, really opens the door to maximum inclusion and diversity.” Jorge said. 

Data security, SSO and GDPR compliance

“Lastly, Rosterfy provided us with a great solution to data security and compliance, especially with regard to GDPR and single sign on (SSO). It’s our duty of care to safeguard our volunteers' data and to ensure that we’re operating in compliance with the government legislature and Rosterfy is going to make this process so much simpler moving forward because it’s inbuilt,” Jorge concluded. 

With a mission to connect communities to events and causes, Rosterfy are equally excited by the opportunity to work with Scouts Global and empower their volunteers to give back to their communities. 

"We are honored to be selected as the volunteer management solution of choice for Scouts Global," said Shannan Gove, Co Founder of Rosterfy.

The work that they’re doing in shaping young people's futures as active citizens who are committed to helping others is pivotal in establishing a culture of volunteering from an early age. We’re very proud to empower Scouting  to actively engage with communities and to provide a world-class experience for volunteers.”

The partnership between WOSM and Rosterfy signifies a shared commitment to fostering a vibrant volunteer community and delivering transformative experiences to young people worldwide.
