Go! Volunteer is Back! Come and Discover Yourself This April

As part of iVolunteer Philippines’ 10th year Anniversary, we’re excited to bring back Go! Volunteer Expo this 2019! With you and our partners, we believe that we can rally more Filipinos to come together and discover themselves through the act of volunteering. If you’ve been wanting to become a volunteer but don’t know where to start, join us this coming April 6 & 7 at the Glorietta Activity Center and take part in the country’s biggest matchmaking event for volunteers and NGOs!

Three years ago, Go! Volunteer was able to showcase just how many Filipinos are thrilled and eager to become a modern-day hero and contribute to the advocacies and causes around them. With over 20 thousand visitors, including 1,136 who signed up on the spot to aid 28 participating NGOs, Go! Volunteer 2016 was able to create 288 volunteer events and 9327 volunteer opportunities.

With your help this year, we’re confident that we can make Go! Volunteer an even bigger and more fruitful event! Here’s how you can be part of one of the biggest volunteering event in the Philippines:

Be a volunteer

iVolunteer started when our founders realized that many of those who are looking to volunteer are missing on the opportunities because they didn’t know where to start or whom to reach out. To make sure all that goodwill won’t ever get lost again, iVolunteer was established by a handful of volunteers in 2009 following the tragic events of Ondoy. Fast forward to today, you can now help sustain that promise and discover more about yourself in the process by joining Go! Volunteer this coming April!

In the meantime, you can sign up at our website for more volunteering opportunities or share #GoVolunteer2019 on your social media to help us invite more aspiring volunteers like you!

Become a partner

iVolunteer events have been largely successful thanks to the volunteers behind it and the partners and sponsors who have constantly believed in what the organization is all about. As a partner, we would love to bring you in much earlier so we can both work on how we can make Go! Volunteer 2019 a huge success and discuss how you can best represent your brand during the event. If you’re interested, contact us here and our representatives will get back to you as soon as possible.

What to look forward to in #GoVolunteer2019

  • Volunteer Fair – a chance for volunteers to find the NGOs & communities that they would like to support. Volunteers will get the chance to speak with volunteer leaders from 25 NGOs.
  • Hero Museum – showcase of inspirational #EverydayHero stories of people like you and me.
  • Performances from Communities – a showcase of talent by the communities, NGOs, and guest performers.
  • Lightning Inspirational Talks – guest speakers who will inspire everyone to start a journey to self-discovery through volunteerism.

It’s a GO!

Preparations for the Go Volunteer! Event are now in full swing, as iVolunteer Philippines held its kick-off session last January 23, with over 20 Non-Profits and Partner Organizations in attendance.

The kick-off event, held at the Office Project in Salcedo, Makati, brought together iVolunteer’s various Partner Organizations – both current and new, to share what everyone should look forward to on March 5 and 6, 2016 at the Glorietta Activity Center.
Executive Director, JB Tan, opened the event by welcoming the attendees, and providing a brief background of iVolunteer Philippines – emphasizing the group’s mission of engaging all Filipinos in nation building through different and creative forms of volunteerism. Later, Bel Padlan, Director of Partner Relations and Go Volunteer! Project Lead, walked through the activities leading up to and happening during the 2-Day Volunteer Awareness Weekend.

The adventure-themed Go Volunteer! event seeks to encourage visitors to go beyond their usual day, and their usual activities to explore new things, learn about themselves and others, while at the same time contributing and creating impact to important causes. For Partner Organizations, the Go Volunteer! Weekend is a valuable platform for them to not only share their organization’s programs, but also their individual volunteer journeys, enough to encourage others to begin their own.

Interested to join the Go Volunteer! Event? Pre-register by visiting the new iVolunteer Philippines Site and sign up for the March 5 and March 6 events.
