TimeBank and Virtual Volunteering

Surfing through imabrokekid I got to TimeBank, a volunteering national campaing settled in the UK and funded by the BBC. It is sort of a “marketplace” such as Hacesfalta.org in Spain.

They have a Virtual Volunteering section. The intention is good but the info is quite poor (i.e. no reference to UN Online Volunteers at all) and their list of tasks you can do as an e-volunteer just skips the most – for me – important of they all: training.

I thing online volunteering still has to reach shape and weight as a concept. I’d like and help to it :)

If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
