Realized Worth has spent the year like everyone else – adapting, adjusting, and committing to adding value in a new world of remote work where human connection is more important than ever. So, we’ve produced products and services (like our Virtual Volunteer Accelerator and our Volunteer Champion training series!) to meet people where they are. Some of our friends in the field like Common Impact, Benevity, Points of Light, Taproot, Revere, YourCause, GozAround, and others have done the same! Mobilize pulled together this article for us which brings us back to the basics of virtual volunteering and provides some excellent tips, tricks, and direction that we hope will move you forward in your journey.
