for volunteers:
are you already engaged In
virtual volunteering?

The Virtual Volunteering Project is interested in hearing from individuals who have helped or are helping nonprofit or public sector organizations remotely via a computer (helping to set up a Web site, researching funding opportunties via the World Wide Web, tutoring students via e-mail, etc.). We use this feedback to help organizations start or expand their own virtual volunteering programs, and to make their programs as responsive and beneficial to the volunteers as possible.

If you wish to remain anonymous, please note such in under "comments", and we will not publish, here on our Web site or in any printed materials, your name or information that identifies you or the organization(s) you assist(ed).

If you have provided or are providing virtual volunteering, we would like to hear from you. You are welcomed to complete and submit this survey each time you complete a virtual volunteering assignment!

What did you like about volunteering via the Internet, as opposed to volunteering in-person/face-to-face?:

Has volunteering virtually allowed you to volunteer for an organization in ways you couldn't otherwise? If so, please share any insights from your experience that could help other organizations work with volunteers via the Internet. For example, some people who use wheelchairs find it easier to communicate over a modem than to travel to a central site. Other people may work a second or third shift, so they can't volunteer during regular business hours. We'd like to know about your experience as a volunteer and how virtual volunteering may have helped to overcome these sorts of difficulties.

What did you dislike about volunteering via the Internet?:
