Did you know?
Research has shown that volunteering improves health by strengthening the body, improving mood, and lessening stress in participants.
At WCIA, we believe that people who volunteer in global citizenship activities such as international exchanges, peace projects, involvement in community linking, can develop important skills.
But sometimes our volunteers don’t recognise the huge range of skills they develop while volunteering or, if they do, don’t always express these skills in a way that employers understand. Sometimes, employers don’t appreciate the skills developed while volunteering.
This test aims to support volunteers so they can:
- Self-assess the skills developed during their volunteering experience using an online app.
- Support volunteers to move their skills to the next level
- Communicate those skills appropriately on CVs, job application forms, in interviews, etc
- Raise awareness and promote the importance of these skills to employers
This Global Steps test (which should only take you 30 minutes) will help you to identify the global citizenship skills you have, and at what level.
