The 2024 theme for Schoolunteer is “Let’s Help Your Surrounding.” Prima Hadi Putra outlined five key reasons for youth involvement in social projects: enhancing social awareness, developing leadership skills, cultivating humanitarian values, building social networks, and achieving self-fulfillment and self-actualization.

“This initiative serves as a platform for self-actualization. I believe leadership can be nurtured from a young age, and Schoolunteer is our effort to foster a spirit of leadership. This is achievable only by engaging in community activities,” said Putra.

Habib Mailul A, Founder of Fiksioner Indonesia and a Technical Team member of the National Achievement Center at the Ministry of Education and Culture, also spoke at the Schoolunteer 2024 launch.

Triana Rahmawati, an alumnus of the Dompet Dhuafa Bakti Nusa Scholarship, shared her insights on creating impactful social projects within the community.

“Share your inspiration, motivation, and vision on social media to bring your creative initiatives to life. Social projects are not just about extending kindness but about connecting kindness and possibly even changing someone’s fortune,” Tria suggested.

She also highlighted the importance of effective pitching techniques for social movers, including identifying community issues, setting clear goals, targets, and activities, listing project achievements, and acknowledging one’s efforts.
