Starting your search

Idealist.org's search engine lets you look for Jobs, Internships, Volunteer Opportunities, Organizations,  and Events. You can search by keyword, location, as well as opportunity type to find what you're looking for!

You can start out your search in any combination of several ways:
  • By type: Clicking on the listing type at the top of the search results (for instance, clicking on "Volunteer Opportunities" will show all volunteer opportunities listed on the site
  • By keyword: Type a word or phrase into the search box at the top of the page
  • By location: you can add a location to see opportunities in your desired location! Currently the location autofills with your geolocation, but you can always change this if you are looking for opportunities elsewhere. Locations can be either city, state, or country. Alternatively, you can leave the location blank to show all search results that match your search criteria in any location! Just be sure to click the small "x" all the way to the right of the location box.

Depending on the opportunity type, there are a few filtering options available! You'll find them on the left hand side of your search results. To see our new filters, toggle between opportunity types at the top of our search results. We're planning to add more in the future so please keep checking in!
