This tool will help match you to skilled volunteering opportunities that effective animal advocacy organisations are currently interested in.
It only takes 10 minutes to identify the right opportunities, and perhaps another ~30 minutes to apply, if you follow our suggested steps (described in bold below or in the video on the right).

IS SKILLED VOLUNTEERING FOR YOU?
If preferred, you can view the full list of opportunities we have identified here.
We try to make this a fairly comprehensive list of the opportunities at the included organisations. We contact each organisation once every four months to see if they would like to update their entries.
As a small, new organisation, we have limited time to monitor opportunities. We can be fairly confident that opportunities at these organisations will have high impact potential and will be of interest to many of our readers, without doing extra vetting, e.g. due to favourable evaluations by Animal Charity Evaluators. For the same practical reasons, we are unable to respond to unsolicited requests to promote particular opportunities on the board (for now).
SOME PEOPLE WE’VE HELPED
"The service provided by this project has no equivalent in effective animal advocacy. It has helped us unlock a main bottleneck. Project Managers are not so common a professional profile in our line of work in Spain. Being able to connect has helped us boost our internal communications."
"It was amazing to be able to see which charities needed my expertise straight away rather than having to send cold emails, and I got responses straight away. Through this experience, I've found out just how valuable my skills are and how much impact I can make for the animals, which gave me lots of confidence. I gained valuable connections which are already proving beneficial to my career and I'm looking forward to helping even more organisations in the future."
"Thanks to this board we found an incredible volunteer, whose expertise is perfectly aligned with our work and who has been supporting us with research and data analysis for up to 15 hours per week. I am confident that AAC's service will continue to be an important resource for us and many other organizations in the future."
"The skilled volunteering service helped me efficiently narrow down applicable volunteer positions and gave practical guidelines for contacting organizations. I found an organization that was an excellent match for my skills. I was quickly welcomed onto their team and immediately began work on a high-impact project. Matching my skills with the right opportunity has allowed me to help the animal advocacy movement while building experience and honing my skills."
