Volunteering Online – Good for society and good for your career
Volunteering isn’t new. We’ve all done it, we all realise the benefits of doing it, and so I’m not bore you by discussing the usual reasons as to why we should all be out there ‘doing our bit’. What I am going to speak to you about is the variety of options that are now available and allow you make a positive difference to a societal issue, but also help you develop recognised skills to aid your career.
Our lives are notoriously fast paced and our time is all too precious. Therefore volunteering online gives us the opportunity to fit the volunteer time around our busy lives, making a difference at a time that suits you.
There are also some really innovative options out there for volunteering online. One such example is the IME career mentoring programme, which allows you to receive nationally accredited training in management and leadership at a level 4, while making the difference to the life of a young person who is struggling to find their path in life.
By adding nationally accredited training to the volunteering online opportunity, means you can kill two birds with one stone; feed your soul, whilst also propelling you up the career ladder.
