  virtual volunteering guidebook

The Virtual Volunteering Guidebook is a color .PDF document that offers detailed information on the basics of setting up and managing a successful virtual volunteering program. This book captures the contributions of many, many collaborating organizations and online volunteers who worked with the Virtual Volunteering Project from 1996 - 1998.

Organizations can freely download the Virtual Volunteering Guidebook and use it as an offline companion to the Virtual Volunteering Project web site, which offers the most current information on virtual volunteering tools and resources.

The guidebook is co-authored by Susan Ellis, an internationally-recognized volunteer management expert who has served as an advisor to the VV Project since its inception in 1996; and Project Manager Jayne Cravens. The guidebook was designed by Energize, Inc.

NOTE: the web site materials on which this book was based have been updated numerous times since the publication of this printable guidebook in February 2000; therefore, the guidebook is "frozen in time," and is not as up-to-date as the web site. Also, readers are encouraged to subscribe to VIRTUAL VERVE, our monthly e-mail newsletter, to receive updates about the latest additions and updates to our web site.

NOTE: You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the guidebook (it's freeware).

Sight-impaired users can download the free accessability plug-in for acrobat (the plug-in converts the file to text that is able to read with any screenreader).

ALSO: The book is 138 pages long, and takes up approximately 1.2 megabytes of space. Make sure you have enough room on your hard drive before downloading this document, and PLEASE BE PATIENT, as downloading can take several minutes, depending on the speed of your Internet connection. If you don't think you have enough room on your computer to download the guidebook, consider asking one of your volunteers to do it for you using their own machine, and then printing it out for you.
