The Guide covers a wide range of topics including, why you should volunteer abroad, how to volunteer, choosing a volunteer programme and planning your trip. Aimed at helping people understand the options available and making the right choice, the guide is a useful reference point for anyone planning to volunteer abroad.
“While we work with people across all age groups, matching them to opportunities that use their skills best, we find that whether you are 18 or 45 if you haven’t volunteered abroad you still have the same concerns and questions. This guide should go some way in explaining the challenges in planning a trip to volunteer abroad.” Arvind adds, “We are pleased to be able to introduce this guide in time for the A level results this week, with all the news on shortage of University places, we expect there will be many youngsters wanting to embark on a gap year and will be considering volunteering abroad. The guide should help them understand the choices available and hopefully enable them to pick what is best for them.”
The guide can be downloaded for free from the Inspire Volunteering Facebook page that can be found on http://www.facebook.com/
