VOLUNTEERING PROGRAM IS REVAMPED AND GAINS WEBSITE

August 31, 2018
New platform facilitates interaction between volunteers and program
 
In the same month when National Volunteering Day is celebrated (August), the Nissan Institute officially relaunched its revamped “Volunteers of Value” program. The program is designed for Nissan employees and interns, as well as service providers and contractors who operate at the company’s sites. The initiative is now more robust and better aligned with Nissan’s Sustainability Plan, which among other things seeks to benefit the communities in which the company is present.
 
The main new feature is the website www.voluntariodevalor.v2v.net. Here, volunteers can keep track of all activities and their results in a simple, modern and interactive way, as well as share experiences with other volunteers in different Nissan do Brasil locations.
 
The website also has a space for charities interested in hosting one-off volunteering activities performed by the group. To request support, charity managers need to fill in a form with the necessary details and wait to be contacted. You can see the prerequisites to participate here.
 
Priority will be given to initiatives related to the broad theme of education and citizenship, involving at least one of the following four areas: the Environment, Vocational Training, Innovation and Technology, and Mobility.
 
“The relaunch of the volunteering program took place at a moment when we reaffirmed our commitment to being an active player in the society in which we live, without neglecting the important role that volunteers play in this process. We are very proud to offer them a leading role in this new system,” said the president of the Nissan Institute, Rosane Santos.
 
The website can also be accessed by external stakeholders, although some functionalities are only visible to registered users.
