YouthBuild Louisville’s Journey of Moving from Paper to Electronic AmeriCorps Timesheets

YouthBuild Louisville provides education, counseling and job skills to unemployed young adults.  The Kentucky organization takes a truly-comprehensive approach to supporting and serving young adults.

And oh… those darn AmeriCorps timesheets!  Until the organization’s AmeriCorps (and non-AmeriCorps) program adopted the Impact Suite’s timesheets module, the program’s director, Evie Schuster, was spending TWO DAYS each and every week managing the program’s paper timesheets.  With the Impact Suite, Evie cut down that time to two hours.  And with features going live in a few weeks that make it even easier to collect both AmeriCorps and non-AmeriCorps hours on timesheets while keeping things super-clear for state and federal auditors, more than an hour is about to be shaved off from that total!

Below, listen to Evie share her AmeriCorps timesheets story and how she freed up nearly two days a week to focus more attention on mission, not admin.

You’ll also hear Evie mention the ongoing professional development workshop series we offer for AmeriCorps members and program staff.  The next training is coming up on May 5th, covering best practices to manage multi-site programs.
