Introducing the Philippines
makesense community

What is the makesense community?

Makesense began with volunteers all around the world who wanted to help social entrepreneurs develop solutions to global challenges. It was their way of taking action on issues that were much bigger than them. Over the years, more and more people and entrepreneurs joined creating a global network of thousands of engaged people!

We are committed to making this community a safe space for all advocates, equipping them with the right tools, and reminding one another that we are never alone in the work we do.

Who are our volunteers?

Put simply, YOU! We believe anyone can be a volunteer, an advocate, a concerned citizen acting on a cause they believe in. No matter where you come from, how much experience you have, or what you fight for – we’ll meet you where you are and help you take it a step further.

Why get involved?

Whether you want to meet inspiring change-makers, act on climate change, take action supporting out-of-school youth, create connections between people, learn about collective intelligence… The best way to decide is to see it for yourself. See what? The makesense magic!

Because makesense is so versatile and doesn’t fit in any category, it can be difficult to understand what it is. Have a look at the About Makesense page. There, you will find more information on who we are and what we do.

Each volunteer chooses how much they want to get involved and what amount of time they are willing to dedicate to organizing events and strengthening their local community. Some of them, especially those starting or developing a local community, spend almost 10 hours per week for months connecting with their local ecosystem. Others just facilitate events from time to time, volunteering a couple of hours for two weeks and then taking some time away from makesense. All contributions are welcome. Remember: you are the master of your engagement journey within the makesense community!

It may depend on the program! All the information for applications should be on the page of the project you’re looking at. We believe that everyone has something to learn and something to teach, whether it is personal experience or knowledge. So, if you wish to join us, be our guest!

makesense is a volunteer community of those passionate about sharing their time, skills, and networks to support impact projects. The tangible rewards for each program and involvement are different, so don’t hesitate to check out the pages for each program! But regardless of the program or project you’re joining, you are sure to be part of a global network of volunteers and mentors!

Here is a list of jobs that make sense, whether it is with us or at other organizations.

  • makesense is centered on citizen engagement and social innovation, and not on one single cause. We support many interconnected advocacies on global issues because some problems cannot be solved without the others being tackled as well.
  • There are certain causes that makesense is more heavily involved with, either because of partnerships we have in place or because a community member made it happen! For a month or for a couple of years, activities focused on that cause are organized. Be part of the community, here

Of course! We welcome volunteers and advocates any day of the year. They can discover all our campaigns here and join them, or you can let your program officer know directly of their interest.
