Volunteer hours

We at WSU Extension could not have an educational impact in local communities without the work done by volunteers. For this we thank you very much! So why do we ask you to do even more for us and report the details of your work? Well, both WSU and the State of Washington look after the well-being of volunteers by requiring workers compensation insurance for every volunteer. This pays for medical treatment in the event that you are injured while working as a volunteer. Washington State law requires that all volunteers working in support of WSU programs are covered by worker compensation insurance. Volunteers, please remember to keep your volunteer hours updated by logging hours monthly. Logging your hours ensures that you are covered by WSU’s liability insurance while you are doing volunteer work.

To log volunteer hours:

  1. Go to http://wsu.givepulse.com/login. DO NOT click the Log in with WSU email button.
  2. Under the button, click Click for more options, enter your personal email and password for the site, then click Log In.
  3. After logging in, in the upper-right corner of the window, click the down arrow next to Hi, Your Name or your profile picture, and select Add Impact.
  4. On the Add Impact page, under the search box click My Groups.
  5. Click WSU San Juan County Master Gardeners.
  6. Under Did you attend a listed event or volunteer opportunity? click the list box and select the program category for your hours.
  7. In the Date section, fill out the form with the date and time range you volunteered:
      • Start Date
      • End Date
      • Start Time
      • End Time

    Tip: For a simpler form, click the -Time and -Date buttons to change them to +Time and +Date. Then, you only need to enter a Start Date and Time, and the number of hours you volunteered.

  8. In the Requested Information section, fill out the form for these fields: Program Categories, a description of your volunteer activities, Statewide Program Priorities, if it applies. You may ignore the rest of the fields for now.
  9. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Add Impact button.
  10. If you have more hours to report, repeat steps 3-9.

Put the Child First training

WSU Extension requires child protection training for all Master Gardener volunteers because of the possibility that they may have contact with youth and vulnerable adults while working as a Master Gardener Volunteer.

This training is a short, 20-minute presentation that may be viewed at any time. You may also make arrangements to view it at the WSU Extension office.
