Hello, a world of opportunities awaits you in the realm of online volunteering! Let's explore a few exciting options:

Amnesty Decoders is a fantastic platform where you can contribute by conducting research on global human rights violations. Your efforts can help bring justice to those suffering.

Crisis Text Line is another wonderful opportunity where you can provide round-the-clock support for individuals in crisis. Your words could be the lifeline someone needs.

Project Gutenberg is a unique platform that allows you to donate materials, books, and even proofread others' work. Your contributions can help preserve and share knowledge.

Hi Anandita,

Thanks for getting in touch with us! You've asked a great question.

Are you considering this volunteer work out of personal interest, or is it a part of your academic requirements? If it's academically related, it's usually coordinated school-to-school and contributes to your grades for a specific course.

However, if it's a personal interest and you're seeking to gain experience in a field you're passionate about, that's fantastic! This experience can be a valuable addition to your resume or CV.

The best volunteer opportunity for you will depend on your personal interests and advocacy. For example, if you're interested in future government work, volunteering at public offices or the Mayor's Office would be an ideal fit. The experience gained from these opportunities can be a stepping stone towards a career in public governance.

To explore more volunteer work possibilities, consider visiting various community offices and inquire about potential opportunities. Many places welcome students eager to gain real-world experience. If you are interested in international organizations, you may inquire or search for these organizations and email them about your plans and interests on volunteering work. They are the best person that will be able to help you.

Remember, while these positions may not be paid, they offer invaluable experience and a chance to contribute your time and skills. Plus, they could potentially open doors for future employment in the same office post-graduation.

Always strive to do your best, whether it's volunteer work or a paid job. Develop a positive work ethic and gather as much experience as you can for future use.

Best of luck on your journey!

Finding something you’re passionate about makes it easy and fun to serve your community and humanity as a whole. So many places and organizations absolutely rely on volunteers so you should be able to find something that suits both your interests and time available. If there is an organization that you are already passionate about, reach out, they may need the exact help you can offer!
