Walden Change Action Network (WeCAN) User Guide

The Walden Change Action Network (WeCAN) is our university-wide platform that is currently, primarily used a volunteer management system for Global Days of Service. However, it has additional uses to empower our community to build cause-based interest groups, social change projects, and more.

WeCAN allows us to track our collective impact made and build a community around our annual month-long call to action for service, Global Days of Service. Review the below for information about how to use this platform.
