WE FACILITATE

After selection, our Account Managers will get in touch with you, provide an onboarding briefing and connect you with the organisation to kick start your skills-based volunteering journey. Throughout the process, our Account Managers will be checking-in with you to understand your progress and to offer a helping hand whenever necessary.

Collapse Icon.png

Strategy projects for social organisations generally revolve around assessing their processes, capabilities, organization objectives and their relevant external environment to derive insights, guidelines and frameworks to drive improvement and growth. Some strategy projects we offer include impact assessment, growth strategy and process optimisation.

When do projects start?

Projects are on an ad-hoc basis and start when suitable volunteers are matched to it. New projects will be posted every Thursday and the applications will be closed on the following Monday for immediate projects.

Immediate projects are projects that require volunteers to start immediately and will usually start 1-2 weeks after their application closes.

Is the volunteer work remote or physical?

I have no work experience, can I still volunteer?
