Many NGOs in Hong Kong operate on limited funding and manpower in an effort to maximize resources for programs that support their core mission. Skills-based volunteering helps address this challenge by engaging volunteers to provide specialized skills and services that leverage job-related expertise, such as accounting, design, HR, IT, legal and more.
For NGOs, skills-based volunteering provides access to specialized skill sets and talent they may not otherwise have. The engagement also empowers the volunteer to leverage their professional skills to drive positive social change, expand their network, develop meaningful community relationships and hone their skills.
