Acquaint is a nonprofit peacebuilding organization that works to heal divisions and prevent conflict. Enthusiastic volunteers from 45+ countries connect on our website for one-on-one conversations to share culture and perspectives.
Cultural Networking is a remote volunteer opportunity based on each volunteer’s schedule. Each week, you will enter available days and times on the Acquaint website. Based on your availability, you will be paired with a fellow volunteer for at least one session per week. You could end up connecting with someone down the street or on the other side of the world! Sessions last an average of 45 minutes, and the goal is to ask questions, learn about the other person, and build our intercultural communication skills. A series of virtual icebreakers help move the conversation along.
Once you apply, you will receive an email with Acquaint's volunteer handbook and a short open-book quiz to complete. Once you've submitted it, an Acquaint team member will be in touch with you to invite you to an onboarding session.

Acquaint is a nonprofit peacebuilding organization that works to heal divisions and prevent conflict. Enthusiastic volunteers from over countries connect on our website for one-on-one conversations to share culture and perspectives.
Interactions on Acquaint are made easier and more fun by a series of virtual icebreakers. By listening and sharing with one another, we work to build peace and global solidarity. This is "cultural networking" and it has the power to gradually erode barriers of prejudice and misunderstanding that divide humanity.
Each week, volunteers enter their availability on the platform and are paired for sessions based on their time. Pairings are random. Volunteers could end up talking to someone right down the street or on the other side of the world. Either way, there is much they can learn from each other!
