Logging Hours on Track-It-Forward (TIF)

World Relief requires volunteers to log their volunteer hours on Track-It-Forward (TIF). Our responsibility is to report the community/volunteer support our families are receiving in order to maintain our grants. We also believe that volunteers are vital to our work!

 

When logging hours, the most important thing to remember is to leave a comment/note and the family’s last name. Remember, drive time for any service begins from the refugee's home. Additionally, miealge is ONLY logged when a refugee (or luggage for Airport Welcome) is in the volunteer's vehicle and they are being transported to a direct service.  

 

Select the activity that most closely fits what you did.These are just a few examples, please reach out to your Volunteer Coordinator if you have questions about your visits/hours!
