Global Volunteering

Our mission

Impact is embedded in our DNA. Through global volunteering, our employees foster their connection to local communities by making a significant impact on people’s lives, as well as boosting their own morale, and sense of purpose.

How we do it

How we do it

Our employees volunteer their time to help their local communities

The spirit of global volunteering is based on local activities, giving employees an opportunity to connect with and contribute to their local communities. We encourage and support our employees to volunteer throughout the year in ways that are impactful and meaningful to them, their communities, and those they work with.

Global Volunteering Week

We also organize ICL’s Global Volunteering Week – an event to draw specific attention to volunteer opportunities and to recognize our employees’ contributions throughout the year. Participants in 17 countries and 55 sites reached out to their communities, getting involved in activities such as park and beach clean-ups, support for at-risk and elderly populations, renovating and refurbishing community structures and public schools, assisting at animal shelters, helping at local food banks and many others.

 

The success of this event came not only in the participation during the week, but the dramatic increase in volunteer contributions throughout the year that followed on from this event.  We had an increase in the global workforce participating in volunteering activities, creating a lasting cultural shift throughout our organization.

Removing the Barrier of Shame

Many victims of sexual violence do not rush to seek help. The MASLAN organization, where ICL employees volunteer, tries to get to as many of these victims as possible and help them.
