BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, May 5, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — United Planet and Goodwall are excited to announce the #VolunteerGlobal Challenge! This challenge gives young people the chance to win a scholarship worth up to $2,000 USD to use towards a United Planet volunteering project of their choice.
To enter the challenge, participants must record a video of themselves explaining where they would like to volunteer, what they would like to do, and why. They can post the video in the Goodwall app or on social media using the hashtag #VolunteerGlobal.
“We are thrilled to offer this scholarship together with Goodwall as a way to encourage young people to think about volunteering opportunities around the world,” said David Santulli, Founder and President of United Planet. “Volunteering not only helps young people make a positive impact on communities, but it also provides a unique opportunity to learn about different cultures and traditions.”
Goodwall is a skills-based social network for Gen Z to learn and earn. With a mission to level the playing field for youth globally, it currently supports more than two million young talents in 150+ countries to build skills and connect to opportunities. Goodwall partners with leading corporations, organizations like the UN, and governments to develop programs that upskill and mobilize youth on topics such as sustainability, education, and health. Goodwall provides a safe space for youth to build confidence, share their achievements, and gain recognition. Its gamified nature incentivizes and motivates Gen Z to progress in their skills journey, preparing them for the future of work.
Goodwall’s Co-Founder, Omar Bawa, also expressed his excitement about the collaboration: “Goodwall is proud to collaborate with United Planet for the #VolunteerAbroad challenge. We believe that volunteering can be transformative for young people and hope this partnership will inspire and empower a generation of global citizens.
