The Virtual Volunteering Project, under the leadership of Jayne Cravens, operated until 2001 under the auspices of the Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin. It was accessible through the Service Leader Web site and much of the original information can still be found there. However, that site was revised in 2003 and older information -- particularly related to online mentoring -- was removed. Because the original Virtual Volunteering Project materials were so helpful (and frequently timeless), Energize has received permission to archive them here.
