Volunteering with Philippine Generations
Volunteers are the foundation of Philippine Generations. We are a volunteer-led organisation. Through the time, talents and dedication of our volunteers, we are able to expand the work that we do and continue to grow Philippine Generations as one of the leading Filipino community group in the UK.
Thus, we strive to continually develop our volunteer infrastructure to ensure we are able to offer the right climate and support for our volunteers to thrive in their roles– gain new skills and work confidence— whilst genuinely making a difference to the community.
You don’t need to be Filipino, to have cash or qualifications to volunteer for us. What is most important for us is your desire to making a difference and have the ability to translate ideas into tangible actions.
Why volunteer for us?
Philippine Generations recognises that there are a hundred and one reasons why people like to volunteer. We do our best to be flexible and make it as easy as possible for our volunteers to contribute to the cause.
Volunteering with us can offer you opportunities to:
⦁ Connect with new friends or professional contacts
⦁ Learn something new about the Philippines— its people, language and culture
⦁ Gain more work or life enriching experiences
⦁ Develop your leadership skills in a safe learning environment
⦁ Gain insight into the Filipino community in London
⦁ Make tangible difference in the community whilst having lots of fun in the process!
Depending on budget /availability, we also offer free training, learning and development opportunities and reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses such as travel or lunch. We also regularly organise meet-ups and events to recognise and thank the contribution of all volunteers.
