Doc’s Answer

Akshar volunteering online lets you donate your virtual time to a cause space that matters, which means you can make a difference even if you can’t go physically volunteer somewhere. Volunteering is a highly beneficial and rewarding way to employ your time. Not only can you contribute to important causes that could inevitably bring about substantial change, but you can also grow as an individual, attain valuable work experience and develop vital skills that can further your career.

UNITED NATIONS VOLUNTEERS • https://www.onlinevolunteering.org/en
If you’re looking to take your online volunteering worldwide, this is the place to start. UNV connects you with organizations working for peace and development in need of skills like research, writing, art, and design. There are already over 12,000 volunteers from 187 countries lending their talents to organizations around the globe.

CATCHFIRE • https://www.catchafire.org
This volunteer search tool is exclusively for online volunteer projects. Each one has a timeline that can range anywhere from an hour to a few weeks. So whether you have an afternoon or several, you can help not-for-profit with tasks like writing thank you letters or editing photos.

SMITHSONIAN DIGITAL VOLUNTEERS • https://www.si.edu/volunteer/DigitalVolunteers
The Smithsonian Institution is the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex, but even they could use a little help sometimes. Help make their collections more accessible by volunteering online to transcribe historical documents or edit Wikipedia articles related to their artifacts and research.

VOLUNTEERMATCH • https://www.volunteermatch.org
VolunteerMatch helps non-profits connect with qualified volunteers, offering them recruitment solutions for their projects. Although they don’t exclusively offer online opportunities, they have a pretty broad section for people who want to volunteer from home. You can find opportunities across a variety of sectors including arts and culture, computers and technology, advocacy and human rights, and health and medicine. Simply select a cause that interests you and then filter the results to find available virtual opportunities.

CRISIS TEXT LINE • https://www.crisistextline.org/become-a-volunteer
Here’s a perfect example of technology being used for good. Become a volunteer to help the Crisis Text Line continue to offer free, 24/7 support for those in crisis. If your at least 18 and can commit to volunteering four hours each week, you can apply to be trained for free.

Jeremy’s Answer

Unless you have friends who can make recommendation for where to volunteer online, your best starting place is going to an internet search. A google search for "Online Volunteering" brought up this article https://www.dosomething.org/us/articles/9-places-to-volunteer-online-and-make-a-real-impact

If you have a favorite cause, send them a message and ask how you can get involved.
