At Catchafire, there's a range of volunteer opportunities available to choose from on our Find A Project page. Read below to learn more about the various types of engagements we offer, from one-hour calls to multi-week projects, and discover what's best for you!
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!
Where do I start?
If you don't know where to begin, 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!
Interested in a longterm project, but not sure if it's the best fit for your time or skills? Apply anyway! Remember: Interviews are the perfect place to learn more about a project before committing.
