Private sector volunteer activity by US-based enterprises has been active in local communities but underrepresented internationally. Recent program innovations have demonstrated value by tying international volunteer activity to business strategy, leadership development and corporate social responsibility efforts. In partnership with the IBM Corporation, USAID will support an International Corporate Volunteer program, which will enhance development efforts by leveraging the skills and expertise of corporate volunteers. An important goal of this program will be to increase the number of participating companies and active skilled business volunteers in USAID development activities. Stay tuned for updates as this new and innovative program evolves.
