Projects are fully scoped and range anywhere from 5 to 50 hours.
Projects are great if you need a volunteer to do something for you - like design a logo or build your organization a new donor database.
Phone consultations get you 1 hour of a volunteer's time.
Phone consultations are great if you need a volunteer to discuss something with you - like brainstorming a name for a new program, or choosing the right platform to build your website. They're more freeform, so you can easily customize a post for your needs.
- Try starting with a call: 1-hour phone consultations are a great way to get your toes wet in the virtual volunteering world, and gain further clarity on what your needs are before committing to a full project. You can always follow up by posting a project request!
- Projects can always include a phone interview: There's no need to use phone consultations to recruit volunteers for a full project. Every project allows you to interview your applicants, which is a great way to get to know them before deciding to move forward on a full engagement.
