Cuso International's e-volunteering program welcomes new and returning volunteers to work with our international program partners and volunteers remotely. E-Volunteering offers many of the benefits gained from international volunteering while having the extra advantage of fitting into one's regular weekly schedule without needing a passport. Contributing and giving back to a community, gaining new skills, and making new connections are common benefits of e-volunteering. For Cuso International, it is an excellent opportunity to engage more people in its mission.
E-Volunteers are expected to supply their own essential home office equipment, Internet and have a moderate knowledge of computer technology. Some of our partners are located in remote areas with an unreliable internet connection. Also, for some of our partners, this is their first experience working with e-volunteers, so flexibility and patience is a valuable e-volunteer characteristic.
