If you join us as an Experteer, we’ll first provide you with training and primers on the social impact industry, best practices for skills-based volunteering during COVID-19, and how to design projects and programs for long-term, sustainable impact. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in monthly webinars on how to use your Experteering experience to help your career. Finally, you’ll spend up to 3 months working with a social enterprise on a project matched to your professional skills, both enhancing your own skills and providing your host organization with a usable product.

Program Overview

Follow the steps below to get started and create a real, lasting impact.

1. Claim your account

Register for MovingWorlds with the unique link provided. PayPal sponsored participants must register using the link provided by PayPal HR to access the full program experience.

2. Sign secondment agreement

Work with your PayPal HR partner to sign your secondment agreement within 10 days.

3. Improve your experteering profile

After your account is set up, you'll be prompted to improve your Experteering profile. This helps organizations learn about you, and it also helps our team provide better support.

Completing your profile will also include you in a platform feature, auto-matching. With our skills-matching algorithm, we can match your skills with a project’s skills requirements automatically, and alert both you and organizations of a potential skills-match. This will reduce the amount of time it takes you to find a match as you will be automatically introduced to projects and organizations. Learn more about auto-matching in our Frequently Asked Questions.

4. Browse projects

Browse projects listed by PayPal Nonprofit Partners here. If you find one that is interesting and fits your skills, please click on that project to learn more about it.

Make sure you are searching for projects that match your skills, which you selected when creating your Experteering profile in Step 3. First search projects from PayPal Nonprofit Partners for a skills-based match, and if you don’t see one that fits your skills, then search for projects across our entire network of partner organizations on our platform . If you request introductions to projects most aligned with your skills, you’ll have the best chance of matching quickly.

[Note as of January 18: Projects will be added to the PayPal Gives project page as nonprofit partners submit them. If you don’t see a skills-based match with a PayPal Nonprofit Partner project right away, you can browse projects across our entire network of partner organizations and keep checking back for a skills-based match with a PayPal Nonprofit Partner.]

5. Request an introduction

If you see a project that is interesting and fits your skills, click on “Request Introduction”, you will then be prompted to add an introduction message. This will notify the organization to review your profile. If they want to work with you, they will confirm with MovingWorlds, at which point we will introduce you together and guide next steps detailed in our matching process.

6. Planning & ongoing support

Once you are matched, our team will guide you on next steps for the Experteering Planning Process. At any time, if you have questions and/or need help finding a project, our program team will provide you additional support to help you find and plan a high-impact project.

7. Best practices and tips

We recommend you review our onboarding and best-practices guide, just for PayPal Gives Nonprofit Experience Program Participants.

8. Complete your project

Follow our tips on Experteering best-practices while you work on your project.

9. Share your feedback

As a participant of this program, you will be asked to complete a required survey to share feedback about this program.
