Posting Category Update: Environmental Positions

If your organization is looking for volunteers who are passionate about issues such as climate change, pollution, and environmental health, here’s a category for you!

“Environmental positions” is now included in our list of posting categories. Just remember, categories describe the position volunteers will be applying for, not the organization they will be applying to. If you have any other suggestions for categories that can be added to our posting list, please contact Kasandra at
