Our volunteers are the experts of today sharing practical knowledge with the experts of tomorrow.
Since 1964, we’ve set the global standard for engaging volunteers to spur global economic development. We leverage our expertise, experience, and strong relationships with more than 5,000 registered experts to field volunteers where they can serve the broadest needs and have the deepest impact on people, businesses, and communities.
Our volunteers go all over the world to work with entrepreneurs, small and medium enterprises, exporters, governments, and others to unleash the potential of private enterprise as an engine for growth.
“I believe that only by understanding others can we gain understanding for ourselves. I believe in a world where everyone shares information, so that collective knowledge increases.
I learn something new every day I volunteer.”
– Lynda Swenson, IESC Volunteer Expert and 2016 Volunteer of the Year (VEGA)
