How do I create a volunteer listing?

PLEASE NOTE: It's FREE to post volunteer listings on CharityVillage, and the listing(s) can be available on our site for up to 90 days, before having to be re-posted.

Here's a quick, step-by-step guide to creating a volunteer on CharityVillage. But first, you will need to go to and Sign In to your CharityVillage account.

If you don't have a CharityVillage account, don't worry. Just click Create a Free Account located at the top of the CharityVillage homepage. 



Once you are logged into your account, click Create New Volunteer Listing located under the category Volunteer Listings.


Step 1: Fill in the required details of your volunteer listing 



  1. Select the language of your volunteer listing
  2. Select the start date you wish your volunteer listing to appear on the CharityVillage Volunteer Board
  3. Select the deadline you wish your volunteer listing to be removed from the volunteer board
  4. Input the title of your volunteer listing
  5. Select the duration of your volunteer listing opportunity from the drop down menu
  6. Choose the type of opportunity you are recruiting for. You can select up to 3 options
  7. The Great For category is optional. If this is an opportunity for everyone, then do not select from this menu

Once you have finished filling out the required fields with a red asterix, click Next.


Step 2: Location of volunteer opportunity


  1. Select the country from the drop down menu
  2. Select the Province/State from the drop down menu
  3. Selection Region from the drop down menu (Optional)
  4. Input the city, town, village,etc., where the volunteer opportunity will take place (Optional)
  5. Input the postal code of where the opportunity will take place

Please Note: If the position is home-based or flexible in location, select the grey box.

Click Next to proceed to the next page.

A pop up box will appear and asks ff there is another location for your volunteer listing. If yes, click Yes. If not, click No to continue.



 Step 3: Logo (uploading a logo is optional)


  1. Enter the name of the logo you are about to upload
  2. Click the grey Browse button to choose the image from your computer
  3. Click the green Upload Image button

Step 4: Enter the description of the volunteer position 



Enter the position details and contact information in the description box. Copy and paste from another document or type the position details directly into the box. You can include links to external websites and email addresses, and you can modify the format of the posting with the formatting tools at the top of the box. Don't forget to add contact information for how people should reach you to apply.

It is optional, but highly recommended to include a short summary (max. 300 characters) into the bottom box about your position. This will help your volunteer opportunity stand out to individuals who have subscribed to email alerts that notify them of opportunities like yours.

Once you've finished filling in the information, click Next.

Step 5: Preview page


This page allows you to review your entire listing before publishing it. If you need to make any changes, click the green Back button at the bottom of the page.

In addition, at the bottom of the preview page, CharityVillage can now post skilled volunteer positions to LinkedIn, FREE OF CHARGE

The red arrow below shows where you can select either Yes or No to have your skilled volunteer listing posted to LinkedIn free of charge.
