Virtual Volunteering

Virtual volunteering is the process of rendering your skills using the Internet while remaining off-site from the physical location of the business, organization, or project. On-line volunteering occurs in numerous forms, such as: tutoring, mentoring, counseling, research, social justice support, branding/ marketing, video creation, social media, volunteer tracking, virtual staff support and more.
