HOW THEY CAN HELP
Business professionals can help your organization lower costs, operate more efficiently, and grow faster. They can work on specific projects to improve your organization's strategy, operations, human resources, and processes, or you can ask them to train your team members in these same skill areas.

TIPS
Most professionals in this skill category are available for 1 to 4 weeks.

See how we supported Maya Traditions with their business strategy

HOW THEY CAN HELP
If your team needs training on a particular topic – like entrepreneurship, leadership workshops, communication, language, or anything else – you can get a qualified professional to conduct a training and/or mentor you or your staff.

TIPS
These projects are best when they are 1 to 2 weeks in length. As Experteers will work with you full time, you can ask for a combination of training support, like 1-on-1 coaching, small team workshops, and big trainings.

See how The Great Generation in Ghana trained its team and community in children’s education.

HOW THEY CAN HELP
Telling your organization's story with video, photos, and great design will help improve your organization’s marketing, fundraising, crowdfunding, and even investment efforts.

TIPS
Be specific with what the final outcome of the project will be, explaining the type of media, length, and format. A good length for these projects is 1 to 12 weeks.

HOW THEY CAN HELP
An Experteer in this category can help you get more press, improve communication efforts with key partners, grow your presence through social media, and/or work on an internal communications strategy to improve your operations.

TIPS
As Experteers often have cultural differences, it’s a good idea for opportunities to be at least 2 weeks long so they have enough time to communicate clearly within your cultural context. In addition to a project, make sure to ask for training from the Experteer to teach your team effective communication tools.

HOW THEY CAN HELP
Get help improving or re-designing a website or mobile application. Experteers can also help build a new web or mobile application, but only if they are working with a dedicated team member from your organization. Experteers can also be used to help teach your team the latest technology or development methodologies.

TIPS
Web and software development is a really wide-reaching field, so be specific to the project. Since most Experteers have limited time, publish a small and specific project, and make sure you have a dedicated team member already leading your technical project.

Maya Traditions used a team of Experteers to relaunch their new website!

HOW THEY CAN HELP
Get help developing a new sales strategy, setting up a CRM system (like Salesforce or Streak), improving your marketing campaigns, training team members on sales skills, and/or helping expand sales and marketing efforts into new regions!

TIPS

HOW THEY CAN HELP
Experteers have backgrounds in permaculture, renewable energy, research, conservation and more. An Experteer can help with your research, train your team on new tools, help design new systems, add capacity to your current project, or any combination of the above.

TIPS
For projects as short as 1 week you can have an Experteer come to upskill your team, in 3 - 6 weeks they can support current project and accelerate its completion, or can design and lead a new project if they have at least 2 months.

See how Ecohostel Medellin received a permaculture expert to expand its farm

HOW THEY CAN HELP
Help your team members develop accounting skills, refine financial projections to help raise money, and/or support the implementation of a new accounting tool.

TIPS
Experteers can support your organization operate more efficiently in as little as 1 week. If you are using an Experteer’s help with raising money, plan a project at least 2 weeks long

See how Impact Hub Medellin received an Exprteer to develop its finance strategy.

HOW THEY CAN HELP
An Experteer can help you improve the quality of your building project, lower the construction costs, and/or train locals on more sustainable building practices. Experteers have skills in design, engineering, supply chain / sourcing, and building.

TIPS
Be specific with the skills you need – design, engineering, architecture – and for how long you need the person. Projects from 1 - 3 weeks are good for training theory, while longer projects (3+ weeks) are best for working on an existing project. If you need something built from the start, a longer project of at least a couple months is a good idea.

See how EcoFarms was able to develop its eco-friendly research facility

Read About Us and Our Experteers in the Press

"Deana helped us design and rebuild our entire website. She taught us how to setup and follow a solid work process, while at the same time understanding the local limitations we face. She has been a fantastic guide for the whole team, and a lovely person with whom we’re still in touch today."

-Alison - Maya Traditions, Guatemala. Received Experteer June 2014

Focused on a Sustainable Impact

In addition to years of professional experience, Experteers go through a training and planning process to ensure they can start making a positive impact right away. In addition, the Planning Guide was designed specifically for you and the Experteer to complete together in order to have you both on the same page and ensure a sustainable impact.

A Low Cost Solution to Find Skills

We believe you shouldn't pay to find help, and MovingWorlds will NOT charge you. In exchange for donated expertise, we ask you to provide an immersive experience and local benefits to the Experteer. As the Host Organization, you decide exactly which benefits you can offer. If possible, we ask you to provide meals and a free place to live, even if it's an extra room in your apartment or a homestay. Its even better if you can also include travel stipends, free meals, or special excursions . Think about what is most attractive to an outsider and offer what you can. Our easy-to-use sign-up process will guide you through the steps to promote your project and find support.

MovingWorlds is a great service for small organizations like ours that normally don't have the resources to access top talent. They connected us to an amazing architect that designed our premises for environmental research, and they accompanied the process a very pleasant and personal manner.

Frequently Asked Questions

A skilled professional who is volunteering his/her expertise is an Experteer. "Experteering" professionals are usually traveling and looking to use their skills to gain international and immersive experience.

MovingWorlds is a free service for social impact organizations. Instead, we ask that you invest in creating a good experience for an Experteer by providing local benefits, like free accommodations, local tours, and an immersive experience. When you sign up, you will be asked to provide whatever resources you have to provide. We find that organizations have the best chance of finding a quality Experteer if they provide room and board.

From all over the world. Experteers travel on their own account, or via corporate or institutional partners. Skills include financial, technical, business, operational, fashion, manufacturing, construction, health, and many more. MovingWorlds only recruits professionals that have real experience, and often times, graduate degrees.

Responsibilities are shared. Organizations interested in hosting can publish any type of “benefit” (i.e. Room & board, local tours, language practice, stipends, etc.). People pay MovingWorlds for access to the database of opportunities, as well as for our training, resources, and support. Experteers usually pay for their own travel while organizations can cover on-the-ground expenses.

All organizations must provide legal registration information, as well as relevant links to their online assets to prove legitimacy and a social mission. Organizations are primarily recruited through global development partners and impact investing institutions to aid with verification.

All Experteers pay to access the platform which allows us to ensure they are real people with contact information. We also ask for a photo, background information, and even connections to their social media websites (like Facebook) so that they can link to other proof points. Experteers also provide their resume, and Linkedin profile. All Experteers go through Experteering training to be made aware of best practices. The ‘Experteering Planning Guide’ you go through during the matching process also ensures you can communicate with the Experteer before making a commitment.

In addition to finding you skilled volunteers, we give you exposure to our global network of other social entrepreneurs and changemakers. We have also developed resources to help you make the most out of hosting international volunteers.
