UX Volunteering


#1

Hey guys. I am now looking for places that need UX volunteers. I am not a novice so I am not looking in order to start in UX I am looking for interesting projects where I can help doing what I do best. Does any of you know/already volunteers doing UX?

Hi Ruth,
Welcome to the community.
There aren’t enough people like you in the world. :slight_smile:

Have you thought about approaching a not-for-profit organisation, like a charity or relief fund? Or even a museum or local school?

Hi Ruth,

you want to do something good?
There is a place which is called UN Online Volunteers https://www.onlinevolunteering.org/en/index.html
You could train your skills there with some of the small companies. It´s not specifically for UX but you could offer you support there.
Some want Redesign of their webpages …

I think it´s cool and you could build up some material for your portfolio
My wife created a fundraising strategy for an NGO in Uganda … and there are companies who need UX support as well for sure :slight_smile:
