At Interpal we strongly value our volunteers and your contribution to the Palestinian cause. We empower our volunteers to make changes to people’s lives through their actions; to take control of when and how they contribute; and to lead on any fundraising project they are passionate about.
What’s in it for you?
The work we have been doing on the ground since 1994 would not have been possible without the valuable support of our donors and volunteers.
While we appreciate that most people want to volunteer because they want to make a difference, we feel that volunteering is a two way experience and that there should be benefits in return for your time.
- Meet and work with interesting people
- Volunteer flexibly, around all your other commitments
- Add value to your CV by gaining skills & experience
- We can even provide references to future employers if you need
- Have your out-of-pocket expenses paid
- Free entrance to our events, and chance to attend dozens of other events
- Free cab rides home whenever you volunteer for more than 4 hours at late-night appeals
- Get invites to various recreational activities that our Fundraising Team organises
- Be rewarded at our annual Volunteer Appreciation Evening
Join the effort to help Palestinians in need
In order to make your experience with us fruitful, please think carefully and ensure that you have enough information about what is involved before you decide to volunteer. Some of the questions below will help you decide:
- Think about what you want from volunteering – Do you want to build new skills, enhance your CV or just want a chance to contribute to a cause?
- Think about what you have to offer – enthusiasm, work skills, life skills?
- Work out roughly how much time you have to give, and how many times a week or month that you can dedicate to your given tasks.
- Remember that everyone can volunteer – whatever your skills, experience or background, you should be able to find an opportunity that suits you.
- Ask questions, like “who will I be responsible to?”, “what support will I be given?” – don’t be shy about asking questions as you go through the process of applying for an opportunity.
And if you still can’t make up your mind, just try it! Often the most difficult part of volunteering is making the first move.
