GiveShop for General Assembly
Develop your skills and portfolio, while doing good
Who We Are
GiveShop is a matchmaking platform for social good. We connect you to social impact projects that best match your interests, availability, and skill sets. We currently are looking for volunteers who are willing to support our Adequate Housing and Good Health & Well-being projects.
Volunteering your skills to social impact projects is a win/win situation. Social impact projects receive the support they need to maximize their impact, and volunteers can add to their experience. Volunteers are 27% more likely to find a job after being out of work when compared to non-volunteers.1 And according to a survey by CareerBuilder, 60% of hiring managers value volunteerism when making recruitment decisions.2
Recommendations for a Fruitful collaboration
Treat this with the same accountability and engagement as any other employment opportunity.
Our projects invest much effort into onboarding to ensure volunteers have a great experience. Therefore, if you need to end your volunteering opportunity (full-time offer, etc), it is helpful to find and transition another volunteer that can continue supporting the project.
