Welcome to Skillshare International's alumni!

Jackie was a financial advisor in Botswana

To celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2010, we launched the Skillshare International alumni, bringing together our returned volunteers and development workers, former staff and trustees and others who have a direct personal connection to our work.

Re-connect with old friends and keep the spirit of volunteering alive! There are lots of different ways you can continue to support our work and there's something for everyone... 

  • Help us to recruit and train new international volunteers.
  • Fundraise to support our projects and partners.
  • Organise, support or host alumni events and reunions.
  • Give talks and presentations about your placement and Skillshare International's programmes.
  • Provide professional support to Skillshare International staff.
  • Volunteer with us at festivals, recruitment fairs and other events.
  • Build awareness of development issues.
