When I was at University I knew I wanted to volunteer but I was already balancing studying and working in a store. I did not have much free time. I also knew that I wanted to connect my volunteer work to my studies in Environmental Management.
So, I investigated online volunteering and became a volunteer for the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) program. I assisted a charity in Africa focusing on water projects. I had a faster broadband connection than they did. So, I used some of my limited free time to search for different funding sources and provide the research for proposals for funding for the charity.
When I registered with the site, I created a profile for myself. Then I conducted some research on the charities, their projects and their desired volunteer profile (e.g., time commitment, skills, and knowledge required etc). Then I contacted the charities with the projects I was interested in until there was a match.
Is there a way to accredit this volunteer experience?
