Great for finding social-impact work

A Veritable Beacon in the Not-for-Profit World

The utility of Idealist’s goal—to connect idealists to one another—can only become realized if more of us use this platform. I have networked on this app/website and and made lasting connections that will support our cause in future efforts to organize and effect change. But these lasting connections are too few. You’ve heard and/or read this before: people power. Download, rate, and, please, share this tool.

If you only use Idealist to search for work, internships, or volunteer opportunities: you will underutilize the platform but find what you seek. I accepted an offer for the first job that actually means something to me via an application submitted on this platform.
