Skills-Based Volunteering

Corporate Skills-Based Volunteering

There are many ways to be a skills based volunteer at Save the Children.  If you’ve got a lot of time on your hands, or just a couple of hours a month, we need your skills and expertise to deliver big results for kids.  Our volunteer opportunities are short or long-term, are at all levels of experience and expertise, can be individual or team-based, part-time or full-time, and can be completed virtually or in our U.S. offices.  We even have limited international opportunities for very specific initiatives. 

Why volunteer with Save the Children?  Besides the satisfaction of joining the world’s largest and first charity for children, our volunteers share AND sharpen their expertise, working alongside of some pretty amazing people—and changing the world.

Is your company looking for a way to give back?   If you are a corporate partner of Save the Children and are interested in building a skills-based volunteering platform or enhancing the one you already have, take a look at our brochure here and contact Carol Stein, Manager of Skills-based Volunteers at cstein@savechildren.org.

Featured Partner

Penguin Random House
Through an innovative partnership with global publisher Penguin Random House, Save the Children leveraged Skills-Based Volunteers in Rwanda. Our School-Community Partnership for Education (SCOPE) project in Rwanda aims to improve children's literacy outcomes.

Two senior executives from Penguin Random House spent a week working with local Rwandan publishers. They showed how to balance the various elements of a book – from the story to the illustrations to the design – to produce high quality children's books.
