Participation in microvolunteering also creates impact in the wider world out there. For actions that in of itself would seem as though they are not contributing anything worthwhile, you’d be surprised what they’re actually achieving. We have compiled a widely read report into this subject ‘Microvolunteering: Evidence of Impact’. See if it don’t raise your eyebrows!!
If you want to know what students think about volunteering within school syllabuses, then UK based Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education) produced just such a report, based on a survey they conducted in 2011. You can view it here.
We’ve been asked to provide several programmes of microvolunteering activities that students of various schools can participate in. It’s a FREE service, so just Contact Us to let us know if you would like to involve your students in doing good. You can view samples of these programmes, by clicking the images below.
Help From School is a subsidiary project of the Help From Home initiative. It’s sole aim is to encourage and inspire pupils to volunteer their time for the benefit of others and thus instil a sense of altruism from an early age.
