“I believe in the 21st century, companies have a responsibility to give back more than just money, to give back their strengths and talents, to go out and solve the problems of the world.”
-Joe Gebbia, Co-Founder, CPO, AirBnB
Earlier this year, AirBnb teamed up with Malala Fund to provide website knowledge and expertise and help the organization grow. Projects like these build a symbiotic relationship between corporations and community. To build such meaningful connections with nonprofits, Covestro Center for Community Engagement (CCCE) at Robert Morris University (RMU) organizes skill-based volunteering projects.
I volunteered to work on one such SkillShare project this summer. Not only did it have a significant impact on the nonprofit organization we were helping, additionally, it benefited me in various ways. Therefore, I decided to share my experience here.
