Recruitment


This is a partial list of web sites providing searchable online databases of volunteering opportunities, and that are free for you to use to recruit volunteers, online or otherwise. These databases allow a volunteer to search based on their postal code, region or keyword search. This is a list of the most popular sites at the time of this Guidebook's revision, as well as some sites that have caught the author's attention.

Please note that we do not recommend posting requests for online volunteers to any of these sites until you are ready to involve online volunteers immediately. We encourage you to read The Last Virtual Volunteering Guidebook, for more information before using these sites to recruit online volunteers.
