Virtual Volunteering

Posted by on August 4, 2008

Volunteering is expanding beyond the home into virtual volunteering which provides people with and without disabilities the opportunity to volunteer outside of the workplace environment and can be beneficial for providing various accommodations outside of the workplace. Virtual volunteering can include mentoring, creating marketing tools and or planning events and involves the use of technology and/or volunteering via a computer.

One organization,, a project of the RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs of the University of Texas at Austin, provides information on all aspects of volunteerism.  There is information for volunteer managers and service leaders focused on best practices and volunteer management in the section for volunteer managers.
