  Asian Charity Services (ACS) has an extensive network of volunteer consultants, currently more than 500 people and growing. They have an average of over 10 years work experience, and are often senior management staff of local and international blue chip companies. They include bankers, investment bankers, business consultants, accountants, lawyers, HR managers and coaches, branding/communication/media executives and IT executives, who embrace the opportunity to apply their business and professional skills to serve nonprofits in a high-impact and personal way. 
 
Past Volunteer Consultants

     

    ACS provides a structured curriculum which guides the discussions between the nonprofit leaders and the volunteer consultants. Volunteers will receive customized training on facilitating strategic analysis and conducting practical research studies.  The project scope, roles and responsibilities will be explained and defined at a briefing prior to the workshops. They will receive background information and initial analysis on their assigned charity client in order to prepare themselves. Their main tasks include providing consultative advice, coaching, facilitating, and offering strategic insights. 

Volunteer consultants are expected to attend three evening workshops of three hours each.  In between workshops, volunteer consultants will complete two pre-designed research studies, each taking about two hours.

We typically assign 4 volunteer consultants to a team to exclusively serve a nonprofit during the 4 to 6 weeks' training period. The selection of volunteer team is based on a combination of management experience, functional skills, language proficiency and fit with the nonprofit.
