What is the iVolunteer Volunteer Day?
Every other month, iVolunteer Philippines holds a volunteer day for all of its staff. Together with a partner organization, members of iVolunteer participate in various activities such as tree planting, feeding programs and tutorials. Because iVolunteer Philippines aims to promote volunteerism among Filipinos, activities such as this, helps our staff understand fellow volunteers better, as well as appreciate the wonderful work done by our partner organizations.
I am not an iVolunteer staff. Can I join this activity?
Of course! For this event, we have opened 10 slots to non-iVolunteer staff. In case you have questions about iVolunteer and would like to understand more about the organization, this can be the perfect opportunity to meet some of the members.
