I've written another guest post for the official ASTD blog, this time describing a specific example of how volunteering can be a great way to develop employees outside the classroom. I excerpted one of the several case studies featured in my book, Employee Development on a Shoestring, which was just launched by ASTD Press!
This case features the personal volunteer experience stories of two of the three PricewaterhouseCoopers employees I interviewed and wrote about in my book - it describes the ways in which they developed multiple competencies by volunteering to teach and build playgrounds in poor schools in Belize.
What has been your experience with learning by volunteering? I would love to hear your thoughts!
