Makati, Philippines (February 18, 2016) – iVolunteer Philippines, in cooperation with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Glorietta, Works of Heart (WoH) and 2nd Avenue, is putting together the biggest volunteer engaging event of 2016, with the Go Volunteer Expo on March 5 and 6, 2016 from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm at the Glorietta Activity Center. This two-day event brings together over 25 organizations supporting various causes and advocacies, and looks forward to inviting individuals, families and groups of friends to start volunteering.
The Go Volunteer Expo promises participants a unique experience in discovering volunteering. Throughout the venue will be interactive areas and activities where would-be volunteers can learn about pressing social needs and how each one can help. Each area is also guided by representatives from several non-profit organizations, who will be more than willing to share about their programs and opportunities to be actively involved.
iVolunteer Philippines Co-Founder and Current Executive Director, Jan Bernard Tan, sees this event as a good occasion for first-time volunteers to begin exploring what advocacies resonate with them, and understand how their time and skills can benefit the communities that they serve. “We at iVolunteer Philippines dream of a better Philippines, and this is very much possible through the immense contributions of our volunteers. Volunteerism should not only be alive in times of disaster and calamities. Instead, it should be part of our everyday consciousness,” Tan shared.
Interested attendees to the Expo can already pre-register by visiting the Go Volunteer event site at http://go.ivolunteer.com.ph/pre-registration-2/.
iVolunteer Philippines is a non-profit organization, powered by 100% volunteers. It envisions every Filipino volunteering towards nation building, by making volunteerism known, making it easy, and making it happen.
