online resources for
volunteer managers & service leaders

This information was last updated on May 1, 2000

 
Links to Internet resources that provide information on and tools for volunteer recruitment, management and recognition, program evaluation and service leadership, both on and offline. Also included are resources that promote volunteerism. We think this is the most comprehensive index of online resources on volunteer management and volunteerism available!

When the Virtual Volunteering Project first compiled this index in early 1997, the resources easily fit on one page; now, the information is split into four sections:

     
  • Web sites With Volunteer Management Information & Resources
    Links to lists of local volunteer centers, index of information on volunteer screening, matching, record-keeping and evaluation, legal issues/risk management, volunteer/staff relations, online activism by volunteers, and volunteer management software. Also includes links to resources for coordinators of service learning programs, and information regarding mandatory service. This is a list of resources by organization/company. You can also view this index by type of resource.

     

  • Online Discussion Groups for Volunteer Managers & Volunteers
    A list of USENET newsgroups, e-mail-based discussion groups, web-based message boards and updates via e-mail for and by volunteer managers and service leaders. Great places to interact with other volunteer/service managers of various types of organizations, get suggestions and feedback, and ask questions.

     

  • Web Sites To Find Volunteer Opportunities
    For agencies to post volunteer opportunities online, and for individuals looking for a place to volunteer. This is an index of links to major regional and nationwide sites in the U.S. that provide updated lists of volunteer opportunities at various different organizations. These are third party volunteer databases (they provide information about other organizations' volunteer opportunities). Also included are links to indices of local sites, such as volunteer centers and community networks/freenets.

     

  • Web Sites Promoting Volunteerism/Community Service
    For those looking for information about volunteerism (why do it, who is doing it, tips for doing it, etc.) and organizations that sponsor national or international volunteering efforts of their own. This also provides links to service learning resources.
