Our business model is based on providing value to both the professionals that we place in experteering engagements as well as the organizations that receive their support.
As mentioned in this FAQ, we never charge host organizations to post projects on our platform. We do charge Experteers, or the employers who sponsor them, a program fee for participating in our programs, which vary depending on the level of personalized support and additional curriculum surrounding best practices, human-centered design, and professional development resources.
Every project on our platform has been screened by our team to ensure that it is a real organization, and that it exists to make the world better while creating local opportunities for its community. As importantly, we go through a scoping and review process to ensure there is a real skills-need so that you can make a difference. Lastly, we guide you and the host through a matching process to ensure a real impact in the field.
Your contribution to MovingWorlds with your membership andmatching does 6 important things:
- It covers the costs associated with verifying and scoping projects
- It gives confidence to the local team that you are committed to going Experteering
- It covers our costs with reviewing and verifying your profile
- It covers our costs of supporting a holistic planning process between you and the local team
- It supports the Experteering movement
In addition to never charging you to volunteer, our organizations in the field go above and beyond to provide you local benefits – oftentimes a free place to live while Experteering. This ensures that there is local buy-in for the project, and as an added benefit, means that you’ll more than makeup for the cost of your profile verification fee.
