Add Volunteer Badges

About this feature: Badges are a symbol of achievement or proficiency for your volunteers. This free motivational program, enables organizations to award volunteers that attain specific qualification levels, years of service, or contribute a specified number of hours, at the organization (and enterprise) level, with a badge recognizing their efforts. Volunteers will see their achievements on their home page and by going to My Profile >> Badges when they are logged on to myimpactpage.com and the My Impact app. 

Badges associated with qualifications that expire, will only be awarded to volunteers if the qualification has not yet expired.
