2018 Volunteer Opportunities?

While I *did* find a thread asking having a Discussion Board, it is a couple of years old now. Therefore, I wanted to bring this topic to y'alls' Front of Mind.  Has anyone had any recent experience with any of the Volunteer sites (eg. idealist.org).  I know about LINGOs but their .org is more about supplying resources than collecting interested e-learning types.

Or...is it just a matter of going to <insert search engine here> and just start typing keywords in? I know there's the big initiative for Martin Luther King Day coming up, but isn't that more for "physical" volunteering?

Thanks!

ALISON

Designers for Learning has options for volunteers during their service learning projects. http://designersforlearning.org/getinvolved/volunteer-as-designer

KeelWorks has part time volunteer/intern opportunities too. http://keelworks.org/opportunity.htm

Learn Appeal is a UK-based charity that uses volunteers to create elearning. http://learnappeal.com/

Some local ATD chapters may have opportunities too, but it varies widely from chapter to chapter. At the national level, volunteering is usually writing articles or speaking; that can be true at the chapter level too.
