The Online Volunteering programs are the perfect opportunity for those who are interested in donating their time and take advantage of their skills by supporting institutions from different parts of the world, without leaving their houses or committing to a specific date and time.
As a remote volunteer in an NGO located in Split, Croatia, you will support the NGO staff on their current needs as well as their beneficiaries in different areas:
– Creative Technologies
In Split organizations get limited financial help and they channel most of their resources into their social and environmental projects. Even so, these are sometimes not enough to cover the current needs which do not leave them enough margin to hire a team dedicated to design and user experience. The main aim of this program is to connect talented professionals who want to donate their skills to nonprofits who need their expertise. Your main tasks will be related to the creation of digital content that allows the organizations to spread their mission, projects and other important messages. To enroll in this program, you must be proficient with Adobe products (Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.).
• Website design:
Building and/or updating a website for a non-profit will allow it to increase the success and accomplishment of its social impact projects. A catching and user-friendly website will encourage visitors to donate and educate readers about the organization’s mission. You will also help the organization in the long-term since you will be working along with the staff to ensure they will be able to use the new website setup and continue to update independently. Moreover, it is a chance to put your skills, expose your work to a broader audience and build your portfolio.
Note: required experience with Adobe Creative Cloud – Dreamweaver, Photoshop, InDesign,
• Brochure design and layout:
Graphic design contributions are highly valuable for organizations as they tend to have small budgets to invest in this area. This project is suited to individuals who are creative and have a good understanding of marketing and branding, since you will be assisting the organization designing campaign materials, posters, banners, flyers and other print material. Besides, you must ensure all design work is of a high standard and consistent with the organization’s brand image.
Note: required proficiency in Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, & Photoshop and/or other common design and layout applications.
• Video-making & photo editing:
If you have a passion for filming and video editing or photography, we might have the answer for those who want to volunteer for meaningful causes and help nonprofits to grow and broaden their impact. In this project, you will be dedicated to shoot and edit various types of videos to be used on the organization’s website and social media platforms. If your passion relies on photography, your work might be providing images for a range of media and library use and processing, cataloguing and editing images and photographs as requested.
Note: required expertise with Adobe Premiere – or other video editing software – as well as working knowledge of After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator.
–Technology Development and IT
Non-profit organizations all around the world are struggling with everyday tasks like supporting their beneficiaries to make their lives easier or running projects. And with so many daily tasks in hands, it is hard for them to find time to deal with problems like website development or computer programming. As these organizations have limited resources, it is difficult for them to hire an expert person to do it for them. Organizations need a person that is willing to give their time and skills and creative minds to help them deal with this issue. When it comes to website development your tasks will be to create a website for the organizations which allow them to inform the public about their work and actions. Although you will receive some guidelines, you should also use your imagination and skills. So, if your passion is computers and technology and you are very skilled when it comes to transforming an idea from a hypothesis to a usable product, then this is a project for you.
– Sales and Fundraising
In Split, many organizations have limited resources which can be limiting for their action. They must be creative and go out of their ways to get some financial support and collect money that they will use to achieve the main goals of their social and environmental work. Now they need more help than ever to support their everyday operations and to expand. Sales and fundraising play a crucial role in the long-term survival of the nonprofit. Fundraising has changed in recent years and has also become multi-channel, using online techniques, direct mail, email, social media, and crowdfunding to create that basket of income from multiple sources. As an online fundraiser, you will be helping raise vital funds by organizing online sales of goods, using social media to encourage donations and any other innovative ways to raise funds. Other tasks may include identify and approach potential sponsors, design/write fundraising communications, updating donors’ databases, planning and coordinating fundraising activities etc.
Each one of these programs aims at causing a positive impact on communities and environment in different areas.
Because of the organizations’ limited budgets, you’ll likely get to do things you’ve never tried before such as translation, data collection, news writing, technical assistance (legal, labor, commercial, etc.) while also applying your skills and background into these challenges. All of these are internet-based roles with no fixed hours, making it suitable for everyone looking to take on a new challenge alongside their existing commitments. The programs also have a component of cultural and linguistic immersion.
