Volunteering to Expand

YOU CAN ALSO RSVP BY TEXTING YOUR FULL NAME AND “Volunteering” TO +251947350259.

Volunteerism is the act of donating time and energy for the benefit of the community as a social responsibility rather than for any financial reward. It can be formal through volunteering in organizations or informal through volunteering directly in communities. It is a free choice we make to give our time for something we believe in and benefit our community.

Volunteering fuels our passion for a cause, enhances our skills and reputation, and exposes us to different perspectives. Not only volunteering is a rewarding way to give back to our community, but it is also a great opportunity to expand our network. It helps us to build meaningful relationships. Through volunteering, we meet people who support the same cause as ourselves. This gives us an opportunity to support one another on the impact we want to make. It is also an opportunity that potentially opens doors for our career and personal growth.

Upon completion of this seminar, you will:

Understand the importance of volunteering
Identify misconceptions about volunteerism in general and in our community  
Learn ways to use volunteering as a tool to expand our network and create the impact we want

This seminar will be facilitated by AWiB, a membership-driven organization that unleashes potential through networking platforms.
