Volunteer From Home
Transforming the Possibilities for International Volunteering.
Why is Volunteering with UniTED Different?
Work with the leadership of a project to have a transformative influence on its design and impact.
Work is so much more enjoyable when you’re building friendships and learning about a different culture.
Be connected to a promising project that really needs your skills. UniTED’s Tutorials ensure the quality of the project.
Learn by Doing
You’ll build new skills and knowledge through your volunteering experience, overseen by UniTED to prevent damaging mistakes.
Rather than a temporary fix of providing a service, with your project you’re looking to create durable system changes.
There is no cost for our matching services – although donations are much appreciated to allow us to continue to offer these opportunities!
Volunteer with several projects over time, or build a partnership into a permanent position on the project team.
How Does It Work?
Sign up below and we’ll get in contact with you within 48 hours to organise a video call to get to know you a little. This will allow us to find the most suitable project for you to work with and give you more information about what to expect. You’ll also be able to ask any questions you may have.
Generally it then takes 2-4 weeks for us to arrange an introductory skype with the project you have been matched with. Here, we’ll sit in on the call and ensure that both sides are clear about the task to be volunteered upon and the expected timeframe of the task.
We then leave it up to you to continue the conversation with the project leadership over whichever medium suits you best as regularly as you see fit. After 6 weeks, we’ll organise another video call tutorial with everybody to discuss how things are going and what could be imporved. We are always available to sit in on another discussion if things become unclear at any point during your voluntering experience.
The intitial volunteering task often has a period of about 3-4 months – but this does vary depending on projects. At the end of this period, we’ll arrange another personal video call to evaluate your experience and see if you would like to continue working with the project for a more extended period of time.
If so, we’ll probably leave you to work with the project on deciding what tasks you can help with, and will hope to see you during the project’s tutorials every 2 months.
Alternatvely, you can choose to become part of our database of volunteers and await neew opportunities of volunteer with a different initiative.
