Non-profits are at the forefront of tackling our greatest environmental challenges, from climate change to biodiversity loss. Unfortunately, less than 2 percent of charitable giving goes toward environmental causes, often leaving these organizations short-handed in their fight for our planet.
At the same time, millions of people understand the gravity of these issues and want to take meaningful action to protect our planet but lack opportunities to do so.
Our solution: create opportunities for passionate professionals to amplify the impact of environmentally-focused organizations through challenging projects that develop their professional and leadership skills.
We recruit, train, and lead teams of diverse volunteers to work on pro and low-bono consulting projects that help solve our clients' most critical challenges. A typical 10-week project leverages the passions and talents of a team of skilled professionals, providing over 400 hours of services and an average market-rate value of more than $75,000.
We also strive to empower the personal and professional development of our volunteers. On top of project-based learning, we provide ample opportunities for volunteers to learn and grow, such as through our Seed University curriculum, SCRUM Master certifications, Emotional Intelligence trainings, and many others.
