VOLUNTEERISM – the act of freely offering to undertake a task. At The Domino Foundation we know that volunteerism takes many shapes and forms and depending on your availability, volunteering can mean a once off asssitance or a weekly commitment.
Our approach is simple
All our community transformation programmes aim to empower, uplift and transform lives. One changed life impacts other lives and those, in turn, ultimately, through the #DominoEffect, impact and change the whole nation.
It is a known fact that Volunteers add that “something special” to the work that we do and we would be totally lost without them. From pouring their hearts out and loving on the individual children to being powerful voices advocating our causes, volunteers are invaluable and are very much needed throughout our programmes.
Currently the #DominoEffect of changed lives changing lives, is continued through a number of volunteer options:
Ad Hoc / Once Off
We host a number of fundraisers, sporting events and advocacy opportunities throughout the year and need some helping hands for once-off occasions. Alternatively, are you just curious about getting involved and can only spare one day, right now?
Regular / Committed
Regular, committed volunteers allow us to plan programme schedules and activities effectively and allows us to add those extra-special touches to our programmes. This involves fitting into a current volunteer roster or assisting at specific prearranged times.
We have an exciting jam-packed programme for students to accumulate hours for school & varsity requirements. With four, 5 day community service work weeks scheduled during the school holidays, students have the option of gaining 100 community service hours – but hurry register now before they fill up!
Are you an interact group looking for an organisation to support as part of your extramural activity? or are you a class teacher looking at encouraging your kiddies to get involved and give back to their community? We co-ordinate termly collection drives, fun group activities and opportunities for involvement.
Looking for ways to get your staff involved or are you seeking to bring a group and make a difference? Then Domino Impact Days are perfect for you. Your team will feel connected to the projects you support and will make a greater impact with focused activities. We have a range of impact days throughout the year where we invite teams to participate in events, fundraisers and work days.
Are you an international volunteer looking to get involved for an extended period of time? We are currently working on some exciting packages, of varying length and impact just for you. From 2 weeks abroad to 6 month opportunities, we will keep you updated with our progress and let you know when we are ready to launch The Domino Foundation international volunteer programme.
