We spend years developing skills and craft to further our careers. That experience becomes a valuable resource that may be put to good work in the form of volunteer time or pro-bono work for nonprofit organizations.
Individually, some of us get opportunities to help others by word of mouth referrals. If you're a UX designer or developer looking for ways to provide your expertise to organizations needing assistance, or a nonprofit in need of some design time, try some of these sites that may help you find the right match.
Conferences focussed on matching design/development expertise with nonprofits are a great way to see who's doing what, and talk to a lot of people in one place. There are a handful of well-known events that draw a diverse crowd.
The Feast, for example, inspires with the stories of organizations successfully doing work to improve the world, and then puts immensely talented tech people in the same room with organizations focussed on this meaningful work.
The Nonprofit Technology Conference (NTC) is a conference focussed on Tech projects in the nonprofit sector. The event brings together a large number of organizations in its network, to foster sharing information and collaboration. Networking events at the conference, we're told, are one of the best ways to find out more about a lot of organizations in the nonprofit sector doing work that may interest you.
If you're just starting to do your research about volunteer opportunities, or simply know what type of organizations and work you'd like to contribute to, these sites feature events or listings of volunteer opportunities.
If you know of any other resource that would be helpful to include in this list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We'll be maintaining an ongoing list of resources for volunteering and finding volunteers for nonprofit work.
