Evaluating volunteering activities for organisational impact

An employer explaining why they encourage volunteers in their workforce.

In the video, Paul, a director at Lear Corporation talks about their organisational objectives and why they have STEM Ambassador volunteers. You will also see how a STEM Ambassador from Lear Corporation describes the corporate objectives to young people in a presentation.

Lear Corporation organised for a group of local young people to visit their site and did a variety of activities, including building an electric motor, showing them how they build car seats and providing a tour of the factory in the West Midlands.

Investigate

  1. Find your employer’s/organisational mission statement, values and organisational objectives.
  2. Find out if your employer or organisation has a Corporate Social Responsibility Policy or projects with a social responsibility agenda.
  3. Find out if your employer/organisation has a volunteering policy.
How does your involvement as a STEM volunteer with young people address these objectives? Do any of the above constrain your volunteering activities? Share in the comments below.
