Volunteerism is the voice of the people put into action. These actions shape and mould the present into a future of which we can all be proud. - Helen Dyer
Volunteering- Mobilizing YOUth
Volunteering is the best way to get the experience you need, and to meet the people you need to get a job in the field of environment. In fact, it's practically the only way. More importantly, volunteering helps you figure out what you actually want to do, and you get to meet completely amazing people along the way, not to mention help the planet.
Over the years, volunteers have provided thousands of hours of assistance worldwide.
People who donate time are just as important to us as people who donate money.
Not all youth who wish to volunteer have the opportunity to do so. Identifying and providing youth with greater opportunities to participate, enables both the communities and the youth to benefit from social awareness, community service and youth employment.
It is crucial to develop the capacity of youth to create sustainable livelihoods – as skilled and empowered youth will have greater access to information, tools for managing conflicts and access to the labour market. Volunteerism will also contribute towards embarking upon the grave problem related to lack of participation, social exclusion and access to labour experience among youth.
In other words, volunteerism can be seen as an initial step bridging the gab between youth who does not have proper contacts, skills and experience to enter the labour market – and engagement in building up a civil society. Perceived in this way, volunteerism is also a motivating factor that encourages youth to participate and co-operate in favour of a more inclusive and democratic society in South Asia.
The mission of volunteerism thus goes beyond promoting “free labour”, as its intention is to work in favour of a new type of social management based on co-operation and exchange of successful experiences.
With volunteering opportunities across the country in over 21 thrust areas, we offer a plethora of opportunities for volunteers to experience our work in their field of interest and learn from us while enriching our experience with the knowledge and skills they bring to the table.
