NetAid worked with the UNV to set up the Online Volunteer site, but is also its own nonprofit organization that promotes voluntarism for the benefit of the global community. NetAid focuses its efforts on the United States and other wealthy countries, creating a movement of young people who are champions for the world's poor and engaged global citizens.
NetAid's programs educate young people about global poverty and international development, and provide opportunities for them to take concrete actions that make a difference in the lives of the world's poor. NetAid makes direct involvement easy by creating opportunities to raise awareness, correspond with leaders, volunteer and fundraise, connecting people and organizations to local projects that help the world's poorest children go to school and build brighter futures. NetAid uses a range of online and offline learning tools such as educational games, lesson plans and success stories of other young people who are taking action.
