The Box.org Virtual Volunteers is a community of Box employees who are here to help social impact organizations best leverage Box's cloud content management platform or volunteer their skills. As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to use your Box knowledge (or other skills!) to help organizations to better meet their missions.
Launched as the Box.org Coaching Corps, we're pivoting to Box.org Virtual Volunteers to more broadly offer the skills of our Boxers (Box employees) during this time of increase remote work.
The Box.org Virtual Volunteers is your chance to give back and utilize your Box skills for Good! Whether you have 1 hour or 10 hours a month, you get the opportunity to use your skills to have rewarding conversations with organizations and to have an impact. You’ll be amazed at how your knowledge and business skills can truly impact an organization. Other benefits include: meeting other volunteers, growing as a leader through interacting with many types of social impact organization, and learn ing about organizations you may not have encountered otherwise.
Box.org launched the Box.org Virtual Volunteers (originally Box.org Coaching Corps) in March of 2018 to support our social impact organizations' success on Box. We wanted a scalable way for employees to give back through their skills and for social impact organizations to receive the assets they need to best utilize our product. We feel this allows us to follow our Box values to "Make Mom Proud" and "Blow our Customers Minds." We have since expanded to Virtual Volunteers to tap into all of the skillsets that our Boxers have, not just on Box.
Woohoo! We'll need a few things from you to get started:
When you’re all set, please go into Okta under "Box.org Coaching Corps" and complete your profile. Once you've finished, please ping Christina Louie to let her know your profile is ready for review and to go live.
Within our thousands of social impact organizations utilizing our platform, we have a huge variety of organizations with different needs. As a volunteer, your aim should be to blow our customers' minds and do the best you can - you likely won't know every answer and you won't be able to solve everything, but that's okay. We want organizations to walk away from this experience feeling like they can better utilize Box for their needs or are more well prepared for a specific skilled project, and wanting to recommend this engagement to others.
Please ping Christina Louie with the skill and she'll add it to the list. All of the skillsets are pre-populated so we'll need to manually add it.
