To help you optimize your volunteer recruitment efforts, we've compiled our site traffic and connection rate data to determine the best days, times and months to recruit volunteers on our network. Here's a summary of our findings:
The Best Time of Day: 11 a.m. — 2 p.m. PT
The Best Day of the Week: Tuesday
The Best Month: It's complicated, but Fall and Spring tend to be the busiest seasons
For more information on this topic (plus, what to do if you see a dip in connections!), read our full report "The Best Days and Times to Recruit Volunteers."
Of course, you can recruit volunteers at any time of the year on VolunteerMatch, but understanding the ebb and flow of volunteer interest can help you better understand your audience and our platform, so you can develop a more effective volunteer recruitment strategy and boost your volunteer connections.
