Default Interests and Icons

When posting a need in Get Connected, you'll be asked to associate the need with one or more categories, or interests. Get Connected uses these categories to match opportunities up with interested volunteers.

By default, a Connect site has the following interests, each associated with the icon shown. Your site manager has the option to customize the defaults; as a result, the interests available on your site may not match the ones shown here.
