Online Volunteering Opportunities

In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, VSI are not currently sending any volunteers on projects abroad or in Ireland. However, we offer many exciting opportunities to volunteer short-term with online projects. Online International Volunteer Projects are an amazing way to meet and connect with people from all around the world and to continue working towards peace and social justice, all from the comfort of your own home!
