  18. I'm interested in making a difference. When I've tried to volunteer in the past, many organizations are looking for a person to actually be in the office.

  19. I would like to help non-profit agencies solve technical problems to further their work.

  20. I want to volunteer online because I think it would be a new, interesting way to help people out.

  21. A trip planned for the middle of summer complicates a work schedule, but I would like to contribute in a meaningful way in what time I do have.

  24. I recently received my Master's degree in International Relations. My interest in this field deals with human rights and conflict mediation.

  27. I really want to help out, and I have many interrests, but I never found an "easy" way to do it. I believe I have the computer skills and determination to help many organizations.

  38. I've always felt it's important to give of yourself, but I've had a hard time finding the right opportunity. Lots of places I've called haven't even called back (in months). I'd like to get involved on a regular basis with an organization/person/group that has expressed a need for help.

    I want that again.

  42. I currently only work a few hours a week due to medical conditions that priohibit me from working full time. I volunteer for the Big Sisters of RI in Newport County and truly enjoy it. I am unable to have children due to numerous medications I take daily. I have a college degree in Elementary Education/Math/Psych and love research and working for the "underdog". I am also on the internet daily. The premise of this program seems to be something I would enjoy being a part of. I am truly dedicated to helping children who need it. I look forward to hearing from you with my first assignment.

  43. I have both a history of volunteerism and some knowledge of web design, but I haven't used both together.

  44. I like to help people and have always wanted to volunteer for something but never had enough time to travel to any onsite locations. (I've just done some afterschool things in high school.) As a commuting college student who doesn't bring her heavy books to class I end up with a lot of time between classes with nothing to do but vegetate in a computer lab. I would like to do something useful with that time.

  45. I want to volunteer because I enjoy helping people, and I enjoy working with computers. This seemed like a perfect opportunity to use both those intersts.

  46. I'm heavily involved with activities in my community, and I'd love to be more involved.

  47. Hopefully I'll be able to help someone by volunteering here. That's the main reason that I'm doing the -job- I am.

  51. In my current situation, Virtual Volunteering seems particularly attractive to me. I've recently graduated from a Community College with an Associate Degree in Computer Science.

  52. Gain some experience from volunteering virtually.

  53. I am very interested in different and exiting uses of computers and the internet. I have experience in general computing, web design, graphic arts, programming, and writing.

I do not have a car at this time, which makes it difficult to volunteer, thus virtual volunteering would be perfect for my interests and availability.

  54. I am very interested in volunteering to help the community and enjoy developing web pages. Volunteering virtually is an excellent way to develop more skills in developing web pages and continue my support in the community.

  55. I want to have this background behind me for further jobs. I want the experience this can give me.

  56. With an internet connection at home,I want to do more than just surfing. I can do something new and rewarding too!

  57. I eventually want to do more to make an impact on children about education and taking the opportunities offered. As a start I will help in a vitual way.

  58. I like working with the computer. It's easier this way too, for me. I don't have to go from place to place. And it wouldn't have to mess up my schedule or anyone else's (people that has to drive me around). Also, I'm in need of Community Service hours.

  59. I have two daughters that are teenagers and as they need my supervision more now, I have a void during the day and late evening that i'd like to give of myself to help someone that might need me.
