Zhilun: In addition to the great advise from Melissa (below), Catchfire.org is another great resource that helps connect volunteers with various organizations. Based on the tags you selected, I assume that you are a skilled graphic designer. Catchfire.org has opportunity for volunteers to help create brochures, flyers, infographics for non-profit organizations. Check them out!

Zhilun, thank you for asking this question and for wanting to give of yourself to others.

As an active volunteer myself, both physically and virtually, I have suggestions.
Based on your tags I assume you are interested in web design or something similar.

All non-profits have websites and typically also a public Facebook page. All either have skill-based volunteers that maintain their pages and content, or they pay someone to do that.

Animal welfare organizations use sites like www.Petfinder.com and www. Adoptapet.com to showcase their adoptable animals. Profiles for the animals are hosted by these sites and contain bios, pictures, and videos of the animals available for adoption.

The organization can electronically send you the information to load to the site and you can volunteer from anywhere in the world.

I hope you find such an organization in need of your talent and willingness to help. Happy volunteering!

Denise recommends the following next steps:

  • Visit www.Petfinder.com and www.Adoptapet.com to see the format. Search for an organization within the platform. Review their information. Contact them and ask if they need any help with their profiles.

Hello Zhilun,

Great question! I’m passionate about helping people find innovative ways to volunteer, including volunteering on platforms like CareerVillage.

You’ve asked a great question here, but you can also help to provide comments, replies and also offer your advice to fellow students as well and “pay it forward.”

If you are good at math, I’ve heard of organizations you can find, perhaps through your local United Way, who need volunteers to help prepare or offer support for individuals during tax season.

I truly feel it is important to volunteer your time, and help make an impact in our world. More and more, we are introduced to different ways we can volunteer using technology.

By using innovation and technology to help others, we can find ways to connect to more people and organizations that are helping achieve social good.

Best wishes for success in your education and career goals.

Melisa recommends the following next steps:

  • Check out this article on “Using Technology and Innovation for Social Good.” https://www.greenpath.com/technology-and-innovation/
  • Check out some unique apps and organizations that are using technology for good, through unique volunteer or fundraising ideas, like Tango Tab at https://www.tangotab.com/ or Operation Gratitude https://www.operationgratitude.com/express-your-thanks/
  • Seek out a mentor or individual in a career that you are passionate about and learn more about their job. Consider setting up time for an informational interview or job shadow session.
  • Keep asking great questions! The more you ask the more insight you can receive from a diverse range of professionals.

I use Taproot to volunteer my design skills. Nonprofits submit work they need done and volunteers go on and list the skills they have. There's a description of the job and info about the nonprofit on its listing. If you're interested, you schedule a phone interview and kind of get to know each other and discuss the project. If it feels like a good fit on both sides, they choose you and you work directly with them. I've used Taproot many times and it's always been a great experience. It's really fulfilling knowing that my time and skills have gone to helping others.
