Projects vs. Phone Calls: What's the Difference?
Projects are fully scoped and range anywhere from 5 to 50 hours.
Projects are great if you're ready to do something for a nonprofit - like design a logo or build a new Salesforce database.
Phone calls require just 1 hour of your time.
Phone calls are great if you're willing to discuss something with a nonprofit - like brainstorming a name for a new program, or choosing the right platform to build a website. Whether diving into a specific question or topic these engagements are a much smaller commitment than working on a full project - just one hour and you’re done!
- Try starting with a call: 1-hour phone consultations are a great way to gain experience in the virtual volunteering world. You can always follow up by applying for a project!
- Interviews let you learn more about a project before committing: Interested in a project, but not sure if it's the best fit for your time or skills? Apply anyway! Most projects involve an interview, which is an opportunity to learn more and determine if you'd like to move forward.
