10 Reasons to Volunteer
1. Make a difference.
Volunteering is about giving back. With a team of like-minded people by your side, you’ll get the chance to be a part of something bigger than yourself: to immerse yourself in different experiences, to instigate change at a grassroots level and along the way, to gain new perspective.
2. Change a life.
We believe the most beneficial thing we can do is to give people opportunities, not handouts. With us, you will lay the foundations of durable change and improvement in the lives of the communities you work with.
3. Give back to the causes most meaningful to you.
Pick your volunteer work based on what inspires you most. Whether it’s animal conservation, primary education, or construction work, you will create positive change in the world.
4. Gain a new perspective.
As the saying goes, “life begins at the end of your comfort-zone”. We come from extremely privileged countries in terms of both opportunities and amenities, and often do not realize the hardships others endure. You will be amazed how much you can take away from a summer volunteer experience and how it allows you to see the world in a different way.
5. Make a real connection.
Volunteering means you’ll have the chance to work alongside people from all over the country and make life-long friendships!
6. Real-world experience.
Releasing baby turtles, teaching English in underprivileged primary schools, laying foundations and building houses, preparing lunch for up to 100 children, cleaning crocodile enclosures, refurbishing classrooms, making enrichment toys for elephants… talk about real-world experience! You will bring home skills you never even knew existed!
7. Learn new skills.
Volunteering abroad is eye-opening, and the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself: you’ll learn to problem-solve, work with a team, be resourceful and adapt to life in an unfamiliar environment. These are skills that will benefit you for the rest of your life, no matter what field of work you chose.
8. Boost your resume for college applications.
As a general rule, recruiters look out for people with community involvement. It helps to create a positive impression, makes you more innovative, creative and gives you a range of useful skills. More importantly, college recruiters look at community involvement from students as a demonstration of leadership.
9. It's fun!
Volunteer work can be demanding, but it’s also a whole lot of fun!
