Programmes Volunteering Programme
The BCC’s volunteering programme connects the profit and non-profit sectors within our membership network. Are you a for-profit company looking to expand your Corporate Social Responsibility activities? Let our programme match you with a non-profit organisation that can benefit from your skills.
Find your inner volunteer!
Many of our non-profit organisations need soft skills help from a professional in areas such as marketing, accounting, design and management. In other cases, they are looking for manual work from a team of volunteers. Whatever the specific needs of our non-profit members, our programme operates on the principle that both parties benefit from volunteering activities.
The mission of the BCC’s volunteering program is
To facilitate CSR activities among our for-profit members
To increase the visibility of our non-profit members
To create long-term, mutually beneficial volunteering partnerships between BCC members
Who can participate in the programme?
All BCC members can become volunteers. Non-profit BCC members are eligible to receive volunteers.
Not a BCC member? Join today!
