Inquiry search radius matching volunteers who are too far away
Some program administrators have noticed that they are receiving inquiries from volunteers who are based outside of their program's service area and are therefore not viable candidates for them.
When volunteers search for available mentor/mentee programs, they have the option to search for programs as far as 100km from their location. This wide search parameter can result in inquiries from volunteers outside your program's area of service.
When this occurs, we recommend encouraging volunteers to search again on the site for a more suitable match.
