Corporate partners can make a crucial contribution to ICVolunteers and to the communities in which we work, while enjoying the benefits of association with our organization.
Corporate volunteering allows employees to share their knowledge and skills with non-profit organizations and individuals who need them, while developing both personally and professionally.
At ICVolunteers, we tailor our volunteer projects to the needs and interests of each partner, providing both short- and long-term opportunities in an international setting.
