When searching for volunteering opportunities via do-it.org, I came across a listed volunteering opportunity for 'Horsesmouth' (www.horsesmouth.co.uk). This is a website that allows people to act as 'mentors' to people online; it is free to sign up and all potential profiles need to be reviewed before actually starting.
So, if this comes under a volunteering-searching website, does it count as actual volunteering or is it too informal (talking to people online)? Could this be put on a CV?
Any help is much appreciated.
Does this count as 'volunteering'? Watch

I think that counts
Often universities/employers etc are interested in an applicant's voluntary work in terms of what skills it helped them develop, and what it shows that they're like as a person. You can say that this helps with social skills, empathy and time management, among other things, so it's all good

it definitely counts as volunteering and would actually be something to show off about on your cv due to the skills you'd get from giving people advice and motivating people, both of which are valued in jobs especially when you near manager positions.
