Invitation for International Volunteering Fair

Join us on Gather Town and discover the world of volunteering!

It’s time to celebrate the International Volunteer Day!

 

JOIN THE FAIR

 

We are very happy to invite you to the first SCI International Volunteering Fair on December 5th! This online fair will not only round up our 100th anniversary celebration but also give you a glimpse of the work done by SCI everyday. The goal of this event is for future volunteers and current volunteers to meet, share information, exchange knowledge and experiences. It’s also a chance for you to discover the global impact of SCI’s activities and learn how you can get involved in volunteering and what opportunities are available. 

How can you join the fair? 

The fair will be held on the platform Gather Town. It is a web-conferencing platform, where little avatars (characters) walk around a virtual world, created specially for our event. You will create an avatar that will represent you in our digital world and you will discover public and private rooms, booths, workshops spaces, lounge spaces as well as movie rooms with digital content from our branches and partners all over the world. You will have the opportunity to speak privately with interesting people as well as listen to prepared presentations, participate in many activities and interact with objects filled with surprise contents. There will be much to learn and discover! 

The fair will last the whole Sunday so you will be able to join whenever you feel like it throughout the day. The link will be provided here as well as on all our platforms later in the upcoming weeks. We advise you to use Google Chrome or Firefox, as the platform is made for both those browsers.
