Hearts and MindsSM works to help end extreme global poverty more quickly and cost effectively with programs that get to the roots of this major challenge. We accomplish this through public education, advocacy and lobbying for foreign aid and foreign policy reforms in the United States and eventually in other wealthy nations.
For many years, we provided tens of millions of people with inspiration and information to make a difference on major challenges including poverty, the environment, human rights, addictions, psychological and physical challenges. We’ve provided over 600 individuals with hands-on vocational experience.
Our focus now is helping end extreme global poverty. We’re revamping our website for this major expansion of our work.
Why volunteer with us?
Flexible hours - we’ll work with your schedule!
Develop skills with your choice of hands-on activities in our wide range of working groups.
Friendly office - you can work directly with our president and other professionals.
Important For many activities, we require at least a year of experience. Except for those with high-level professional skills, we ask most volunteers to average at least 15 hours a week for at least a month. Some exceptions are possible.
Hearts and Minds is a great organization because of their passionate and motivated team. Their rewarding volunteer opportunities can be attributed to their president, Bill Blackman, who works to ensure that every volunteer has a valuable experience. His transparency and ability to understand if the organization would be well aligned with the potential volunteer allows him to build a mutually beneficial experience. The office environment really facilitates learning and growth, as you are able to work closely with Bill and other professionals.
This nonprofit was very organized, and they were easy to work with. I did some initial work for them, and was lined up to do more — when my work schedule quite suddenly expanded. I'd been interviewing for two different projects (one freelance, one contract), both came through, and I decided to take on both. That along with another project I was already involved with meant there was no more give in my schedule, not for the next twelve months.
I joined Hearts & Minds last month and I strongly recommended to be a volunteer here!
You can work with a range of projects, improve your skills, share your thoughts with all team and contribute for this respectful organization.
Great place to volunteer!
