3 Websites to Help you Find Volunteer Opportunities

Websites to Find Volunteer Opportunities

Since there are tons and tons of nonprofits finding a volunteer opportunity is pretty easy to do.  The issue is finding an opportunity that fits your needs and interests.  Some people want to work with animals every Monday while others want to paint a building one Saturday every year.  To help you find that perfect volunteer opportunity that’s in your area, here are three websites you can use to search and contact nonprofits for volunteer opportunities.

See how our website builder can help your nonprofit find volunteers ›

1. VolunteerMatch.org

Using VolunteerMatch.org to search for volunteer activities is really straightforward and very simple.  You type in your zip code and a keyword about the type of activity you want and you get a list immediately.  I typed in 63132 and “technology” and found a nonprofit that teaches 4th – 8th graders how to use the computer.  I was then able to send a message directly from the website to their volunteer coordinator expressing interest in the program.

2. Idealist.org

Idealist.org is another great place to search for volunteer opportunities online.  My favorite feature of Idealist.org is the ability to drill down to the exact types of volunteer opportunities you’re looking for.  After typing in my city in the search box I was then able to use the sidebar to look for only events.  Once I was looking at events I could choose to see only walks, conferences, or fundraisers.  If you’re looking to make a career in nonprofit work they also allow you to pull up available jobs or internships in your area.

3. All for Good.org

All for Good.org is a service of Points of Light, a large nonprofit organization inspired by President George H.W. Bush’s Daily Point of Light Award for individuals who have made a difference. Just like VolunteerMatch.org and Idealist.org you can search for opportunities by location and see results from places like AARP, United Way and more. Also, you can start your own project or register an organization to start recruiting help.

I know this article doesn’t even scratch the surface of all the websites you can use to find volunteer opportunities, but hopefully it will help get you started if you’ve had trouble finding volunteer opportunities in the past.

Is Your Nonprofit Looking for Volunteers?

In addition to posting your nonprofit’s volunteer opportunities on the same sites we’ve listed above, you can use your own website and communications channels to recruit help. Here are some of the additional articles we’ve written on this topic:

If you have used the internet to find a volunteer opportunity, how did it go?  Share your tips in the comments.

      I would like to volunteer but I am disabled so I’m not sure what I could do but I do need to do something I have had for fusions in my lower back. I have had a fusion in my neck and shoulder surgeries but I would love to find something I can do to be productive during the day after working for 20 years

  2. 13 Israel Nasasira March 22, 2015

    We are a charity in Uganda. Any advise of how to get volunteers?

    1. 14 Jonathan Goldford March 22, 2015

      That’s a really good question Israel. I would suggest looking for Ugandan websites similar to the ones listed here and posting your opportunities there. Otherwise, make sure to list volunteer opportunities on your website and make it easy to reach out to get involved. Aside from that, ask people. A lot of people don’t volunteer simply because they’re never asked.

  4. 21 Nancy Bergman April 3, 2015

    I am planing a visit to India. Can you tell me about the best volunteer organizations in India?

    1. 22 Jonathan Goldford April 3, 2015

      Thanks for writing Nancy. Unfortunately, I don’t think I can be a ton of help here. Your best bet is probably to do a Google search for “volunteer opportunities in India” or even a more specific search for volunteer opportunities in the cities you’re going to be visiting. Good luck.

    2. 23 Peeyush June 24, 2015

      You can visit http://www.educare.in website there is a lot of potential to work in development sector with local community.

  5. 29 Steph April 15, 2015

    Hi Jonathan. I am actually liking for the opposite. I’m trying to locate volunteers in my area that may be able to help with light tasks with my dad who has dementia. I found one elder website that required you to pay upfront before even obtaining any information, which is unsettling.
    Are there websites you are aware of to help locate local volunteers?

    1. 30 Jonathan Goldford April 15, 2015

      Hi Steph,

      It’s going to be a little harder for you to find volunteers directly since I would guess you’re not set up as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. My best recommendation would probably be to search for nonprofits that help provide elder care. They would likely already have volunteers who are willing to help, and would have the processes in place to provide effective care. I hope that’s helpful and good luck.

  6. 31 Md. Rakibul Islam April 23, 2015

    I want to be a world’s renowned volunteer. How can start the task to be? Though I am a novice in this regard.

    1. 32 Jonathan Goldford April 23, 2015

      Hi Rakibul, that’s a difficult question. If you want to be world renowned you should probably start volunteering all the time for highly visible nonprofits and attempt to have as great an impact as possible in the community. Good luck.

    2. 33 Mina Aryal August 13, 2019

  7. 34 Nicole Proudman July 22, 2015

    I am trying to find a place were i can volunteer helping out the homeless and battered women. I know a lot about programs getting on welfare ssi ssd other programs to help these women find affordable houseing cash ass. counseling a bunch I have helped out a lot of people on my own and would love to volunteer at some shelters and help these women get back on there feet. I am a survivor of a few rape and violet relationships and have been through a lot of what these women are going through now and no one helped me not family friends no one but myself. It makes me feel good to help others and someday soon I am hopeing to become a counselor. I am still battling with some issues but I know I will get through them since I am use to life by now and am doing everything I can to reach my goals and get what I deserve finally. In the mean time it gives me great joy to help those who truely need the help it makes me feel good and Iam proud of myself when I can help someone ans see them become better for the help I have given its a bigger payment to me then money. Don’t get me wrong I do love and need money and after I go to school and become a counselor until then helping people will be great practice and will give me the feeling of good I will be making a difference one person at a time and hopefully what I teach them they teach and help out someone else. Thank you Nicole Proudman can contact me also by phone in the morning after 10am at 716-912-1045

I tried it out and there were a few opportunities where nonprofits were looking for web help. Good luck in your search.

  23. 81 Jon Ollendorf April 13, 2016

    I realize the typical commenter is looking for volunteer activities. However, some are looking for volunteers to help them personally. Hopefully this comment will help people coming to your website looking for assistance. By dialing the telephone number 211, many people in the US are able to find organizations that provide assistance and aid. 2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember three-digit telephone number that brings people and services together.

    The website http://www.211us.org/status.htm gives an indication of coverage by state.

    1. 82 Jonathan Goldford April 13, 2016

      Thanks for sharing Jon. The 2-1-1 service is definitely a valuable resource for the community.

  24. 83 Matthew April 18, 2016

    If you’re looking to do skilled volunteering, check out taprootplus.org from the Taproot Foundation! It’s a nation-wide volunteer marketplace specifically for pro bono, meaning you can use your professional skills to help nonprofits with a high-impact project. Most projects can be done remotely, and it’s a free service for both nonprofits and volunteers.

    1. 84 Jonathan Goldford April 25, 2016

      Thanks for sharing Matthew. This seems like a great opportunity for folks to contribute to the nonprofit space.

  25. 85 Ishant May 23, 2016

    Hi Jonathan.

    Really appreciated the way you help people by your comment. You are doing such a nice job.

But still I do have a passion to do something good. And I want to start it from India. Because i cant go abroad dont have so much money so Can you please advice me or share me anybody’s contact no in delhi so that I can contact with him to join. Because I don’t know from where to start.

    1. 86 Jonathan Goldford June 1, 2016

      It’s great to hear that you want to volunteer Ishant. I’m definitely not an expert on volunteer opportunities in India. Have you taken a look at https://www.volunteeringindia.com/volunteer-delhi.html? That seems like a helpful site and one that might provide you some opportunities. I’d also suggest doing a few searches online to see what else you can find. Good luck!

    2. 87 Praveen October 28, 2017

      Hi Ishant,

      Praveen from Delhi, Nice to see your efforts for an initiative to help others. You can find volunteer opportunities in India at given website. You can find few host available in India where you can try for some volunteer work.

  44. 132 Caroline October 19, 2016

    I would like to suggest the volunteer agency Original Volunteers http://www.originalvolunteers.co.uk for your next round up of volunteer sites.

    Original Volunteers works with smaller organisations and charities abroad and although we organise everything for our volunteers we don’t charge the super high fees of many sending organisations. We always include a couple of projects which offer free stays for anyone on a budget.

    We are also interested in hearing from start-up projects and charities abroad in regions we don’t currently work with which may want to partner with us and be able to make use of volunteers, we have a lot of enquiries not just from younger students but from older volunteers with professional skills such as carpenters, builders, IT professionals and retired school teachers.

    Thank you :)

    1. 133 Christine Soucy October 19, 2016

      Thanks for the suggestion, Caroline. I’m looking forward to checking out your organization.

    I would like to join animals Volunteering, and i always willing to help to other, however I don’t know how to start because I was a immigrants person, and i’ve been living in NYC since 2014, but the thing is I can’t speak too much English language although I was really interested in volunteering. I want to join in there and i fully hope that gives me a lot of experience to get a jobs. Also, I would like to know, if I decided to start this volunteering, what kind of certificate do I need? Because I’m not finish college here, if they asked me to give some documents about my education, I don’t have to give none of it Could you recommend which places are niche for me especially immigrants people? I looking forward to seeing your reply.

    Best regards,

    Hello am Dr. Imani Tinda, Executive Director of Tanzania Youth with New Hope in Life Organization (TAYONEHO). The organization based Tanzania in East Africa.

    We have started Volunteer placement programme in Tanzania, receiving volunteers from Abroad.

    I would like to Ask which is the best way to get the volunteers? ????

    Which organizations in abroad we can partner so that can help us in getting volunteers? ???

    What are websites can allow us in posting our volunteer information apart from Idealist, Volunteer Match and Hands on network? ???

    1. 141 Christine Soucy November 30, 2016

      Thanks for commenting, Imani. I’d recommend posting on the three sites in the post, then searching the web for similar sites based in other countries that also allow you to post volunteer opportunities. Posting opportunities on your website and making it easy for visitors to get involved from there is another great option. Plus, keeping active on social media and growing your network in that way could be a great tool to connect with other organizations and volunteers looking to go abroad. I hope that helps!

    2. 142 Royk November 14, 2018

  48. 143 Tom Uhlhorn November 30, 2016

    Hey Jonathan,

    I’m with an Australia social enterprise called Vollie (www.vollie.com.au), we launched about 10 days ago and we specialise in helping people find volunteering opportunities that can be done remotely and use their skills for. For example, if you’re an accountant or a graphic designer, you can actually volunteer your skillset from anywhere in the world at any time, and the value that the non-profit gets is often worth significantly more than the money you can donate or raise individually.

    We tailor every project to ensure that it can be completed online by a single person, so there’s no risk of being asked to do a task too great to handle.

    I’d love it if you could include our website on your list, as we have about 30 charity partners that we’re currently onboarding and will need a lot of volunteers to help out!



    1. 144 Christine Soucy December 6, 2016

      Thanks for commenting, Tom. Try posting your opportunities on the sites listed out in the article to find volunteers for your nonprofit partners. We don’t update this article with new sites very frequently, but we’re happy to keep your comment on the site for others to find. Best of luck!

    Dear Christine,
    Could you provide me with a few other resources that provide “Volunteer Recruitment” services similar to Points of Light that I can possibly engage with for a project (preferably located within the U.S.)? Thanks!

    1. 156 Christine Soucy January 11, 2017

      Thanks for commenting, Mika. We don’t work with volunteer recruitment services very often, so I can’t personally recommend a service. However, I’d start by conducting a detailed Google search into US volunteer recruitment services in your price range. Reach out to those companies to get a feel for who is eager and willing to work with you and who has worked on projects similar to yours in the past. You can narrow your list down from there. I hope that helps!

  54. 157 K ODay February 13, 2017

    I used to be extremely active, but 20 years after breaking four vertebrae in my neck, and a lower back injury from four auto accidents and a few severe industrial accidents have left me disabled and am no longer able to be active because of severe chronic pain. I have a great deal of experiences that I’d love to share. I also love hearing stories of others life experiences. I am personally having a very hard time dealing with being unable to be active, so give me a solid direction that would allow me to share experiences and get a reason to get out of the house. I know I’m busted up, but my last remaining chance appears to be helping others and being able just to communicate with other people. Please help, in any way possible. I am open for suggestions, any suggestions will be pursued.

    1. 158 Christine Soucy February 15, 2017

      Hi, Kevin. I’m so sorry to hear you’re having a hard time. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities that don’t require physical labor, and some can even be done completely online. Take a look at the three websites listed in the article to see if anything on those sites coincides with your interests and physical abilities. Best of luck!

  66. 183 Deserie July 6, 2017

    I heard of a website a while back where you could volunteer and they would track your hours. And in turn someone could help you with something and everyone accrued hours and spent hours. Does anyone know what it’s called? The program basically went like this… Say Mrs Jones is great at gardening. She would go help someone (volunteer) 2 hours with their garden. In turn she needed help with preparing and cooking meals. So Mrs. Jackson who is great at preparing Italian food would come help (volunteer) 2 hours at Mrs. Jones house to make a dinner. It worked like that. I’d love to sign up for it but I cannot remember the name of it 😩

    1. 184 Christine Soucy July 12, 2017

      Hi, Deserie. I haven’t heard of a volunteer program that works like the one you described. However, there are lots of great volunteer opportunities listed out on the websites in the post above. I hope you find what you’re looking for!

I am a citizen of the country Philippines. Base on my observation, it would be such a great help if one doctor can volunteer to check these people. our company will provide accommodation and food for the volunteer doctor. The locals only have 1 hospital but without doctors; just nurses who take 2 years in they’re study. The locals never experience the world that we all have experience. I hope somebody out here likes to help these people.We don’t a money; Just your learning and expertise with any types of sickness.
