VOMO is a new Volunteer Management tool that Herndon UMC is using. It is an online tool with an app, like Sign Up Genius; but VOMO will place all of Herndon UMC's sign ups--all of the ways that you can lend a helping hand--at one easy to use link. It was created by pastors with churches in mind. It offers tracking for the ways that you have volunteered, which is really useful for our youth that need to record and turn in service hours for school, honor societies, etc. It also offers rewards in the form of charitable donations (like back to Herndon UMC) or gift cards.
Another inviting part is that it allows our community partners to create sign ups open to all and to share them there.
How to Sign Up:
- Visit the VOMO site for Herndon UMC: www.vomo.org/org/Herndon-UMC
- Download the app and join our community "herndonumc".
- Mallory created a video to help you once you are in the hub: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QKpopMgR_bVyLlyzlhMtJOpT75S7V-Da/view?usp=sharing_eil&ts=5d50733d
If online is not your thing, look for clipboards near the Connection Corners or ask the event organizer to place you in a particular role. If you are having trouble, you can always contact the office, Julie or Jen would be glad to help you. You can also catch Julie around worship times.

Frequently Asked Questions:
- Why don't my recent hours show up on my resume? Double check the dates that you are searching across. It may be a small icon at the top of the page.
- Why can't I find the sign-up or roll that I am looking for on my phone? VOMO knows that the app has issues and they will be issuing an update soon that will use the same language as on the webpage. If a particular project has a number of time periods on the same date the time periods need to be scrolled through to see all of the opportunities. You can always use www.vomo.org/org/herndon-umc, even from your phone.
