What is the model of “social volunteering”?

The most common model of volunteering in Israel, without a doubt, is the traditional model—volunteer work that requires long term commitment from volunteers, a single location, and a promise to meet a quota of hours every week. We believe this is one of the main reasons why Israel suffers from one of the lowest volunteer rate in the Western world.
Let’s face it: people today do not want to commit to long-term assignments, and when forced to commit, they would simply rather not volunteer.
Therefore, we have developed a flexible and diverse volunteer model that is particularly suited to the characteristics of younger generations and the needs of companies and corporations that want to build a social factor and improve their corporate social responsibility.
Our events are always group activities, fun, and unique that make the volunteers interact and build a strong bond.
And more than that, at the end of every activity, we go out with the volunteers for a social gathering that is all about having fun and getting to know the fellow volunteers on a deeper level. This is a great opportunity to get to know the volunteers who have been volunteering alongside you and expand your social, professional, and cultural network.

Is it possible to join the non-profit organizing team?

Of course!
Our non-profit is built on a great and amazing volunteer team that has become a small community and family of itself. We are always looking for members to join us and help us make the world a more fun place for all.
If you are interested, contact us by email ([email protected]) and one of our team members will get back to you soon.
You can find more details about certain roles we are looking for on the “Career” page in the top menu.

Who is behind the non-profit?

Behind the non-profit is a long line of young professionals who believe in a new volunteer model developed by OneDay and want to prove that it is possible to produce a volunteer service that is both meaningful and suitable for the needs of young people and for commercial companies in today’s world: fun, social, and group volunteering without long-term commitments.
