For Online Volunteering / Virtual Volunteering (where the volunteer is remote to the organization or person being helped)

    See this comprehensive list of Online Volunteering (Virtual Volunteering) sites, as well as looking at the appropriate aforementioned sites on this page, based on your geography, as many activities, such as translating text or editing documents, can be done by online volunteers.

Also see this excellent long list of volunteer recruitment sites maintained by Energize, Inc. This list is even more comprehensive than the page you are reading now.
