Anybody can visit North America. But if you really want to experience the natural beauty and cultural melting pot found here, you'll need to do more than come as a tourist.
While parts of North America are incredibly developed, not all areas are equal. And, with its population representing people from around the world, it is also home to more nonprofit and social impact organizations than any other region. Therefore, there are a lot of social impact organizations based here that focus on helping at home AND abroad. By sharing your business, professional, and/or technical skills with these innovative North American led organizations, you can help them catalyze innovation and accelerate their progress around the entire world. This sort of volunteering is commonly called skills-based volunteering or Experteering.
