In March 2000, the UN Volunteers (UNV) programme launched the Online Volunteering service in partnership with NetAid, at the NetAid website. In February 2004, the Online Volunteering service moved to its own website, www.onlinevolunteering.org. It continues to be managed and is now exclusively developed by the UN Volunteers, while NetAid has pursued complementary volunteering activities.
