Army Corps of Engineers Recruits Online
Looking for an example of how to recruit volunteers online. Visit the US Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District office volunteer clearinghouse page at http://www.lrn.usace.army.mil/volunteer/.
This site is a nationwide, toll free hotline number for individuals who are interested in volunteering their time with the Corps. By calling the hotline a potential volunteer can express interest in any Corps project nationwide. The Clearinghouse in turn, gives the individual a point of contact for the area they have requested, as well as written information about volunteer opportunities there. Nashville has capitalized on this location and provides a straightforward access to the positions available in the District. It is a clear and easy to maneuver site.
