Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I have no work experience, can I still volunteer?

Yes, you can! As long as you have done similar projects in the past (e.g. portfolio of designed collaterals, any certifications etc.) or have attended the relevant courses, you definitely can volunteer your skills. Do include any qualifications in the comments section to better ease the selection process.

What will the job scope be like?

Every project is different, and therefore, the scope of work will be diverse too! It really depends on the projects that you get staffed on.

Is the volunteer work remote or physical?

It is remote and that is why you can make a difference anytime, anywhere!

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.

What does strategy mean?

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.

Will there be teammates to work on the project together?

It depends on the scope and how large the project is. The number of volunteers needed in the project is shown in the project description page.

Where can I check out past projects and volunteers?

Get to know more about our inspiring and passionate volunteers in Skills for Good and the impact they have created in our series called Volunteer Diaries at The Skills For Good Team - Medium !

How do I get selected for a project?

The volunteers are selected based on the following three criteria.

1. MATCH: The applicant has relevant knowledge, skills and abilities required for the project such as portfolio, job experience, or qualification.

2. ATTITUDE: The applicant demonstrates interest and passion in the project. A resume section dedicated to one's past volunteering experience (if any) will be beneficial.

3. COMMITMENT: The applicant is able to carry out the project and cope with this additional responsibility throughout the project duration.

I am interested in engaging Skills For Good’s services. How can I start?

Thank you for your interest and welcome to Skills For Good! If you would like to engage our services, do drop us an email at skillsforgd@gmail.com and one of our experienced Partnerships Executives will schedule a call to discuss more about your needs. During the call, we will help you scope projects that target your most immediate needs.

How much do we need to pay for Skills For Good’s services?

Good news, our services are completely free as long as you are a social good organisation from either one of these categories - Ground-Up Initiatives, non-profits, social organisations and relevant government agencies. We want to do our part to help you provide the best help to your service users and beneficiaries, and do good together.

How do your services add value to my organisation?

We aim to provide value on 2 fronts:

1. We make it easy for you: we scope the projects and find the right volunteers for you

2. Working with our community of skilled volunteers: Our high-calibre volunteers come from diverse disciplines, from coding to marketing, and they have work experiences that span from startups to MNCs.

I require some projects that are not in your list of services. Will you be able to provide help on these fronts?

Yes, of course! Our list of services is definitely not exhaustive, and we will be happy to provide any assistance to help your organisation. However, as we specialise in skills-based volunteering projects (e.g. marketing, database management, etc.), we will only publish projects where it is directly relevant to volunteer skillsets.
