Volunteer at a professional level

There’s no shortage of volunteer needs.  You can tutor a child in the afternoon, help out at the soup kitchen, or answer phones for a busy nonprofit. But what if you are looking to use your professional skills for a more complex nonprofit project? Catchafire is one option for time limited, project-based work.

Although based in New York City, they now offer virtual opportunities for professionals interested in pro bono work.  Potential volunteers fill out a profile listing their qualifications and causes of interest.  Catchafire then makes a match between the professional and an appropriate nonprofit project, which includes accounting, graphic design, and public relations.  Each project is clearly explained so you’ll know the time commitment and required skills up front.   If you’re ready to take your volunteering to the next level, visit their site. You may find a good match based on your professional experience.
