Volunteers

The Volunteers who serve alongside us have unique, life-changing experiences as they share their talents to help Social Entrepreneurs – and experience new cultures and adventure along the way.

We believe people inherently want to do good, and that true giving requires an investment of oneself, not just writing a check. There are people who not only want to make a salary, but make a difference. They can apply their life’s work in a meaningful way and pass their legacy onto others.

“True vocation joins self and service; it comes from the place where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep need.”

— Friedrich Buechner

We provide our Volunteers a way to engage with the most innovative people and projects on the planet, without having to worry about any of the details. We offer opportunities to volunteer onsite or remotely. For those who choose to serve onsite, we also provide unique and meaningful cultural experiences and adventures—and the ability to form lifelong connections. We think that these experiences lead to happier and more fulfilled people, who then pass it on to others. We help our Volunteers with some of their biggest desires…

Enhancing skills and differentiating oneself

In the competitive world we live in, it can be hard to make yourself stand out. In addition, sometimes it is just not possible to achieve the next level of development through education and the day-to-day job. We have seen breakthroughs in peoples’ development and confidence by working alongside Social Entrepreneurs and other partners, or just simply by applying their skills in a different environment. You can not only make a difference, but see a difference in yourself.

The need for meaning

Our Volunteers want to make a difference, but sometimes things get in the way. For example, it’s not always easy to find opportunities to help the people who have actually asked for it in the first place, and where one’s specific talents can be applied, especially those from the “day job.” We only take on projects where our help is requested and in the very closest partnership with the Social Entrepreneur—and we make them easy to be a part of. In addition, thinking about safety, transportation and other travel details can be a deterrent to moving into action. We handle all of that. Scheduling can also be a challenge so we make it easy for Volunteers to plug in, whether that is full-time, part-time, for a season, for one trip, or for a few hours here and there. We can offer you a life-changing experience that can lead to an expanded world view and personal transformation.

Experiencing adventure

Sometimes we just need to do something different, and a bit out of our comfort zone. It helps us to reenergize, gain a new perspective and build confidence. However, it can be intimidating or overwhelming to find and plan the type of unique experiences we can provide. Our travel partner is extraordinary—they are experts on the ground and design trips of a lifetime. For those who serve with us onsite, we always make sure that you have meaningful, authentic cultural experiences. While you are there, if you’d like a little adventure like we do—whether it’s going on a safari, climbing a mountain or tracking gorillas—we can work that into your trip as well. Adventure is part of our DNA. It helps us live to the fullest and push our boundaries, which transfers to the other parts of our lives as well. We can help you push your boundaries in ways you’ve never imagined.
