It takes courage to volunteer.It takes empathy to care about social causes. It takes vision to build for the future. It is time we all start to care.
The best way to change the world is to get to know yourself. Get ready to start the journey of your lifetime.
Finding the meaning in work and life doesn't have to be difficult. Start with the question 'Why Not'.
Impact-driven volunteering is like skydiving. Some time is needed to overcome our fears and expectations, but once we land - we can shake up the whole world.
Our boot camp provides what we call ‘survival kit’, for getting a meaningful and best possible experience out in the field. Through innovative and collaborative workshops, we build up the core skills allowing efficiency and clarity on goals, helping you thrive at your volunteering challenge.
Our learning areas’ kit is based on needs and demand for a more strategic approach to preparation for a volunteering assignment and desire to understand what makes a positive social impact.
At our boot camp you learn how to plan your impact, how to design social impact strategy and how to awaken the authentic entrepreneur in you.
After the training camp, you are ready to skydive! In this stage, you match your interests with a social enterprise project around the world and you are ready for your volunteering mission! You take time off for the most powerful, life-changing experience there is – finding yourself through helping others,
in an unknown setting!
Adventure time! You select where, when and for how long you want to be an impact-driven volunteer. This is when you become an Ambassador of Generation Why Not. And start living the life of ‘Why Not’.
You join our network of professionals and volunteers adding value to the global family of agents of social change. By becoming an impact-driven volunteer, you set the stage for leading the path towards social change and helping us spread the mission and vision of guardians of social causes.
You inspire others by sharing your story and further growing the support for the social business revolution. You co-create with us a powerful network of impact-driven individuals and communities, transforming the society into a purpose-oriented world with a social cause in mind and heart.
Whether you come as an individual or group of friends, impact driven volunteering provides a unique learning and engagement experience.
The best gift you can give to yourself is to try things you wouldn’t normally do – things that include freedom, creativity and connecting with new people and cultures. Our impact-driven volunteering programs are always available to you, and offer you a strategic choice for empowering yourself in the direction of the new world – where caring about others and what they do is not just an observation
but a choice and desire.
Impact-driven volunteering touches all levels of the society. It also transforms Corporate Social Responsibility programs by inspiring and empowering organizations to help their communities by active engagement and clarity
on impact of their contribution.
Impact-driven community service is a unique opportunity for organizations to get on-board of CSR programs that matter. We welcome corporate members into our family of social change-makers. Generation Why Not proudly offers the lead in transforming the CSR sector with our approach.

Who We Are
Generation Why Not is a non-profit organization with a purpose of facilitating impact-driven volunteerism by building people’s skills and providing them with a working experience in a social business. Our passion is to develop skills and literacy in understanding how impact is planned and carried out and then put what’s learned to the test in a volunteering mission. We are about that one, intense, life-changing experience, through which we get to know ourselves and various ways of how we can contribute to the community of social change-makers. Our impact-driven volunteers learn, travel, explore and ultimately immerse themselves to live the full cycle of impact. Impact-driven volunteering is our means of transforming the society towards a more equal, inclusive and eco-responsible world.
Somewhere out there, there are people who are already involved in changing our world for the better. They are doing their best to build and rebuild communities and create positive social impact, for all of us. Meet them. Get to know them.
We are proud to be a part of the family that cares about mobilizing the society for the right causes. What we have in common is people growth and development and engagement in initiatives and projects that make a long-lasting difference.
