On the 22nd June 2016, my hands and heart invited regular volunteers and its current Ambassadors to come in for an orientation. This event was the birth of my hands and hearts new ambassador program that aims at recruiting the best Ambassadors that are going to revive the spirit of volunteerism among the youth and be agents of change in their communities. This is the first of many Ambassador meet ups to come, through these meet ups my hands and heart aims to create a non-entirely virtual relationship with Ambassadors but want to also have personal encounters with the Ambassadors as this creates trust between both parties. During the meet up Attendees get to know each other, play games, share stories with each other about the work that they do in their communities and most of all volunteers get learn more about the platform. This is a great way to get to know the impact of volunteerism and the skills gained through volunteering.
