Time Commitment: Depends on Self
Care Positioning System (hereby abbreviated as “CPS”) is a volunteer-driven social enterprise that aims to improve the quality and impact of volunteerism for volunteers and beneficiaries all over the world. We believe that volunteerism can impact lives, if done in an appropriate, sustainable and sensitive manner. We want to encourage more people to do so. We promote sustainable volunteerism, community involvement and social impact work, both online and offline. On the online platform, we maintain a knowledge database to match, track, and assist in sustaining volunteerism projects. On the ground, we organize community events and workshops to promote sustainable volunteerism and bring different stakeholders together to foster collaborations.
