Volunteering Abroad

While volunteering in your own neighborhood can do a lot to make it a better place to live, your neighborhood might already be a relatively great place to live. Maybe your passion for helping others could be used in another part of the world.

Volunteering abroad gives you a unique opportunity to travel to another part of the world and make a positive impact on the lives of people you would have never otherwise met. There are a lot of benefits to volunteering abroad, including:

  • Seeing a new culture from within
  • Living among locals in your host nation
  • Personal growth
  • Learning a new language
  • Helping people in need

Many non-profits as well as the U.S. government offer international volunteering opportunities. These opportunities typically charge for room and board, and do not include airfare in their prices. It is best to look at some of these opportunities as though they are vacations where you are volunteering part of the day and completely free the rest.
