Why is keeping track of volunteer time important? The City utilizes volunteer time tracking for two important reasons. Tracking and recording volunteer service allows the City to measure volunteer involvement and link it to community impact. It also allows the City to recognize volunteers for valuable contributions made in service to their community.
