Interview with Katie Kresl, Volunteer Manager

For 10 years, Wanderlust has gathered teachers, experts, musicians, and creators at stunning resorts for transformational experiences—each unique unto itself. Over the last decade, yogis have grown their practice, connected with community, and made life-altering discoveries. To celebrate our tenth year, we’re making our festivals accessible to all.

Wanderlust Festivals are multi-day yoga, music + outdoor celebrations held in awe-inspiring locations around the world. Wanderlust 108, a one-day mindful triathlon, combines a 5k run/walk, yoga and meditation in your favorite city park. Wanderlust offers a wide range of event spanning one to four days across North America.


Wanderlust offered 25 events ranging from one day to four days.” Our large four-day events have over a hundred shifts to fill, and our volunteers are required to work a minimum number of hours” Katie Kresl, Volunteer Manager commented.

This wide range of events and tracking requires a lot of management. “Before Bloomerang Volunteer, we were using Shiftboard, it had a hard to interface to understand, both on my side and on the volunteer side,” Katie explained. The Wanderlust team was sending manual emails to their volunteers. “The schedule was managed through Shiftboard, but there were a lot of manual changes that took place just to combat the miscommunications that were happening, all of which took a lot of time” said Katie Wanderlust volunteers weren’t able to sign up for multiple events, causing additional time and frustration.

The Wanderlust team needed a solution that could manage multiple event’s recruitment, scheduling, and communications requirements.

Wanderlust has chosen Bloomerang Volunteer as their volunteer scheduling & communication tool to reduce administration time and keep organizers & volunteers informed and connected across 25 of their events.

Easy Volunteer Schedule Management

“Bloomerang Volunteer helped me stay organized. It allowed me to see where I had gaps in my schedule and helped me group shifts together for check-in times. It allowed my volunteer coordinators to come in, review the schedule, and easily see what they need to manage, which was nice.

Managing A Single Volunteer Database Across Multiple Events

Bloomerang Volunteer definitely help us scale up our volunteer program. Now Volunteers can sign up for multiple events and they’re still in the system, making it even easier for them to sign up for events this upcoming year.”

Finding The Right Solution Rated 4.5 out of 5 by Volunteers

“I had our volunteers rate their experience using Bloomerang Volunteer on a scale of 1 to 5, and the average response was a 4.5 out of 5. People really enjoyed how simple the process and I think the communication tool in the mobile app allowed them to feel more empowered when working.
