[CBT] Volunteermatch

Hi Lawrence, 

I have used volunteermatch.org to find local volunteer opportunities in the Bay Area and I've also used it professionally in a former organization I worked in, to recruit volunteers (in Wisconsin). I think it is a great tool for us to consider, especially for episodic volunteering instances (that's the capacity I've used it in). Curious to hear the thoughts of others. Would adding this tool help or would it just add another system to our CB infrastructure?

Hope we are all well. Has anyone been to, used or signed up on volunteermatch.org ? 

I think it's a great resource or if we had something similar for communities and mozilla inspired projects. I've volunteered through it for some organisations and you would be shocked how resourceful it can be. 

However this question is because I would love to use it for Genopen and at some point I had tried to use it for Mozilla Uganda but in vain since I needed registration in the US and failed. What makes the site key isn't only the ability to find volunteers, but the ability to post small tasks and projects that you need help on and what types of volunteers you need (volunteer specification). This would be slightly episodic but great. I know some will probably confuse this with the contribute site, but they're different with one posting to a pool of volunteers like the linkedin of volunteers and the other being a gateway to contribution. 

Please let me know your thoughts around this. Thanks.
