You can make a positive impact by contributing both your time and your funds for the greatest benefit of local people. But not all volunteering programs are created equal. The most important question you can ask when seeking the most ethical volunteer opportunity is: How are my time and my financial contributions in the community leveraged? When you contribute your energy and knowledge on a Global Volunteers team, you become one of the community’s greatest assets. When you give money to support the work, you become a part of a long-term effort to support local people. But most important, your contributions of all kinds become part of the community’s story – directly contributing to sustained projects that define their future. Simply stated, you’re a most valuable link in an endlessly renewable chain of volunteers focused on creating, nurturing and sustaining the well-being and human potential of children worldwide.
