Why Volunteer

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

  • According to a survey by CareerBuilder, 60% of hiring managers value volunteerism when making recruitment decisions.2

Recommendations for a Fruitful collaboration 

1

Treat this with the same accountability and engagement as any other employment opportunity.

2

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.
