Projects are fully scoped and range anywhere from 5 to 50 hours. 

Projects are great if you need a volunteer to help do something for your organization - such as design a logo or build your organization a new donor database. You can access these by selecting the "Explore Projects" link at the top of our Project Menu.

Phone consultations get you 1 hour of a volunteer's time. 

Phone consultations are great if you need a volunteer to discuss something with your organization - such as brainstorming a name for a new program, or choosing the right platform to build your website. These calls are more freeform than full length projects, so you can easily customize a post and have a chat about your needs. You can access these calls by selecting the "Post A Call" link at the top of our Project Menu.

Tips

  • Try starting with a call: 1-hour phone consultations are a great way to get your toes wet in the virtual volunteering world, especially if you want help clarifying your needs are before committing to a full project. After your conversation with a volunteer 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 so you can get to know your applicants and decide if they are right for a more full length engagement.
