Why volunteer in an environmental association?
Becoming a volunteer in a non-profit organization is an excellent way to acquire professional experience that you can highlight in your CV. If you want to move towards a career in the environment, an associative volunteer experience in eco-volunteering will allow you to test your motivations and benefit from networking with employees and volunteers to identify possible professional opportunities. Moreover, beyond civic engagement for a cause of public utility, volunteers multiply their skills, and in particular a relational ease that is very useful for the rest of their professional life. Finally, helping an association on a voluntary basis can lead to a contract! Indeed, associations that call on volunteers potentially also recruit permanent and fixed-term contracts, and tend to prefer to recruit volunteers from the association.
How to do volunteer missions in the environment?
Before embarking on a voluntary commitment and getting involved in an association, you should ask yourself a few questions. What kind of volunteering do I want to do? Giving your time to carry out a voluntary activity is a noble cause, but be careful not to overestimate yourself and get involved in too many associative projects! We advise you to discuss with other volunteer workers, to join local groups, and to target the associations that interest you. Please note that by volunteering, you are committing yourself to the association and other volunteer members. Even if you can get involved freely and only do a few hours of volunteering, the voluntary sector seeks to hire active volunteers over the long term. The commitment of volunteers is key for many associations, so get involved only if you can dedicate enough time to your volunteer activity!
What are the types of nature-environment volunteer missions?
Volunteering activities can be very diverse depending on the associative project you are going to join: solidarity actions for a local association, international volunteering experiences, helping the poor... So many volunteering offers for put yourself at the service of the general interest! If you want to orient yourself towards volunteering abroad, find out from international volunteering organizations that can help you join a humanitarian mission. You can also get involved in local community life, for example a volunteer experience in an integration service or the local branch of an environmental association. These volunteer opportunities are a great way to build a local professional network with teams of volunteers! As you can see, the volunteer opportunities are many and varied, all you have to do is find the volunteer mission that suits you best.
