Volunteering abroad is an opportunity to truly experience a place behind the scenes and not just observe it. It’s travel with a positive footprint. It’s the chance to take your knowledge, experiences and energy to people and places that genuinely value your contribution, where you can make a real difference. It’s how you can meet new friends from around the world and be inspired about new possibilities. It’s also the opportunity to develop personal and career benefits whilst exploring incredible parts of your world.
According to a study conducted in 2013 about adult volunteering:
• Volunteers says they feel better; physically, emotionally, mentally
• Volunteering helps people manage and lower stress levels
• Volunteers feel a deeper connection to communities and others
