Manchester Center, VT – October 4, 2012 – If you have a special talent, Digital Wish would like to invite you to become an "expert" volunteer at www.digitalwish.org. Volunteers register and post a quick profile outlining their special expertise.  Our network of 58,000 educators has been invited to post their classroom projects, and an easy search engine helps match them together. It’s a great way for employees to “give an hour” without ever leaving the workplace. The volunteer and teacher schedule a time to video conference over the internet and the students benefit from the volunteer’s special expertise! This is a totally FREE service that Digital Wish provides for classroom teachers and their direct supporters.

Get Started:
Simply login here: www.digitalwish.com/dw/digitalwish/volunteers

  • “Expert” Volunteers will post a profile that outlines their unique expertise.
  • Teachers will post a class project that needs a volunteer expert, by video conference.
  • A robust search engine matches them together.
  • Volunteers get regular newsletters of the latest projects.

Please invite your network to get involved!

Organizations Can Sponsor
Throughout the school year, Digital Wish will be recruiting employees of large corporations, entrepreneur networks, and many scientific associations to have their members volunteer to become Virtual Volunteers for class projects.  If your organization would like to sponsor a special week for your employees or members to volunteer – Digital Wish can create “themed” week of volunteering, just for your organization. Then we’ll reach out to our 58,000 registered teachers to post project ideas posted around your theme.  We can also work with your philanthropic giving division to fund gift cards for your employees such as, “Volunteer an hour and we’ll give a $25 gift card to your favorite classroom for technology!” Contact us for details.
