The mission of MovingWorlds is to provide a forum in which social impact organizations can post skills-based volunteer consulting projects for professionals seeking to donate their expertise and time towards the furtherance of a social cause. MovingWorlds provides a platform to create awareness for international service and connect talented professionals (hereinafter “Experteers”) with a variety of non-profit organizations, international NGOs, startups, social enterprises, schools, and other social impact organizations, large and small (hereinafter “Participating Organizations”). As an additional service to Experteers, the MovingWorlds platform provides guidance on planning an Experteering project. As an additional service to Experteers and Participating Organizations, MovingWorlds recommends actions to plan a project together. MovingWorlds does not charge any setup costs or monthly fees to Participating Organizations, but does charge a fee to Experteers to sign up for an account on the Website. As an additional service to Participating Organizations and Experteers, MovingWorlds also provides learning, community, virtual events, resources, education, and networking.
It should be remembered that MovingWorlds only provides the contact information to Participating Organizations to enable a professional and educational exchange rather like a classified listing and is NOT a travel agency or organized exchange program. All arrangements are entirely between the Participating Organization and the Experteer.
