Our Virtual Volunteer program provides a venue for global-minded people to help developing communities without leaving home. Virtual Volunteers use their writing, design and website development skills to create webpages for these societies.

Why you should volunteer
Unfortunately, many people in developing areas do not have the skills or resources to utilize the internet. InterConnection created the Virtual Volunteer program with those people in mind.

As an InterConnection Virtual Volunteer, you have the opportunity to become involved in a variety of projects, including:

  • Provide marketing assistance for community tourism projects
  • Help create an online store for displaying handmade crafts and materials
  • Gain financial support for non-profit organizations

Who Can Apply?
Anyone with basic skills in website design and development and the desire and commitment to make a difference.
