Other than crisis hotlines, are their any specific remote volunteer opportunities to gain experience in the field of psychology/neuroscience?

Jessica’s Answer

You might consider conducting an informational interview with a person who works at a counseling center, hospital, or other psychiatric facility. Professionals who work at one of these places can offer guidance not just about remote volunteer opportunities, but about the logical steps you can take to embark on a career in psychology and neuroscience research. There may be virtual opportunities such as conducting research, appointment setting, data entry, etc. they can recommend, beyond crisis hotlines. But first, ask yourself some questions to narrow down what it is you want to pursue, where your talents and interests lie, in what part of the world you want to work, etc. Then, conduct an online search for websites of places you can contact - clicking on the "About Us" and "Contact Us" buttons will help. If someone agrees to chat with you, have a list of questions prepared in advance, or email them a list in advance of your conversation. Beyond that, a simple search for "research jobs in neuroscience" may turn up solid results. Good luck!

Hi Chris,

Yes, I see there a few volunteer opportunities in psychology that may have remote opportunities available on the following site: https://careersinpsychology.org/internships/#ohio-internship.

It looks like they have volunteering opportunities through the United Way and Boys & Girls Club which have always been seeking volunteers even under the current circumstances.

Hope that helps and I wish you well!
