Project Selection

Several factors are taken into account when matching volunteers to Community Service or Corporate Social Responsibility programmes. Once you have advised us of the following, we can propose a prioritised list of project options for you:

  • When (week/month/year) you would like to undertake your volunteer programme.
     
  • The donor funding you can make available for your project.
     
  • The number of volunteers in your group (where every participant will be actively engaged.)
     
  • The number of days, weeks or months you can dedicate to the volunteer project.
     
  • The project-related skills level of those in your group.
     
  • The age and/or physical abilities of those in your group.
     
  • The need for local labour to support you in your efforts.
     
  • Your preferences in order of priority - from our VWB Projects
     
  • Whether or not you want to combine your volunteer programme with other Special Interest Activities, Courses or Workshops that are available from Track of the Tiger T.R.D.
