Wednesday, January 24, 2007 -- international jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities

This is the first in an occasional series about useful web resources. is a project of Action Without Borders. In this site you will find:
  • Over nonprofit and community organizations in 165 countries, which you can search or browse by name, location, or mission.
  • Opportunities in your community and around the world, and a list of organizations that can help you volunteer abroad.
  • The best Nonprofit Career Center on the web, with hundreds of job and internship listings.

In addition to searching and browsing, individuals can use Idealist to:

  • Define what information you'd like to receive by email from among the job openings, volunteer opportunities, internships, events, and resources posted here by organizations all over the world.
  • For example, you can choose to receive updates about job openings and environmental events in New Zealand, volunteer opportunities next summer in Chile, and human rights resources in Spanish, and receive all of this in no more than one personalized email per day.
  • Design the perfect volunteer opportunity for yourself by setting up one or more Volunteer Profiles with your interests, skills, and schedule. These Profiles can then be searched by organizations in Idealist.
  • Find people around the world who share your interests, goals, and ideas.
