online volunteering: a reality.

Hey there! Summer is coming (in the southern hemisphere) and young people are looking for things to focus on: sports, clubs, activities... how about some volunteering? If you live in a small town, like me, you've noticed that the possibilities of doing such activities are greatly reduced. or, at least, this is what I thought before I signed up for online volunteering

That's great, but what is it?

Online volunteering is, as its name suggests, a kind of activity in which you help others without getting anything in return - nothing more than your satisfaction in doing the good, experience and contacts you get. traditionally, volunteering is done on the basis of a community or region. now this is changing, and thanks to new technologies we can help a community, region or group of people without even leaving our home.

OK, I got it. but where can I find activities to do?

That's a good question. I recommend 3 sites in particular, because I think they have varied and interesting campaigns, and anyone could find something they liked.

Do something

This site is very interesting: First of all, it has thousands of campaigns you can join. and secondly, you can apply these campaigns to your community, making a positive impact on your own environment.

UNV Online Volunteering service

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. In its online version, you can be part of this great network of bolunteers without leaving your home.

Virtual Volunteer Opportunities at VolunteerMatch

VolunteerMatch is not a site dedicated solely to online volunteering, as you can also find many face-to-face campaigns. but its online volunteering database is huge, and is constantly being updated.

now that you have the best places to start searching, just get started: filter and search for campaigns, select the ones that interest you and start working! What are you waiting for?
