Change the world from just your classroom
Microvolunteering can be described as easy, no commitment actions that benefit worthy causes and which can be conducted in under 30 minutes, on the go, on demand and on a person’s own terms. These type of actions can be included within a citizenship course, where students can learn about and participate in actual volunteering activities within a class lesson without actually leaving the classroom! You can’t do that with traditional volunteering activities. So basically, Future Friendly Schools could incorporate microvolunteering actions within a Citizenship course to enable students to actually change the world in real time in a class lesson to become more responsible active citizens.

This is a great opportunity for children to help worthy causes as well as gathering knowledge about issues in the world. Eva Bhattacharyya,

The idea of using schools as centers of microvolunteering difusion is definitely BRIGHT ! As a teacher, I have witnessed the capacity that youngsters have to grasp the importance of and become involved with SOCIALLY VALUABLE causes.

I think this project has an incredible multiplying effect, with an unimaginable far-reaching impact ! It is practical, thoughtfully designed, and it oozes generosity and inspiration... (And - mind you - I'm not the author's mother!)
