Why Volunteer?

There are so many reasons to volunteer that I couldn’t cram them all into one page, even if I wanted to.

Volunteering is a great way to really get under the surface of a country – whether you’re volunteering with people, plants or animals you’ll get closer to the local environment while helping out.

While going on holiday is great, choosing to volunteer on your holiday is a very special way to create a number of unique memories that you will treasure for the rest of your life.

You’ll also meet a bunch of like minded people who have the share a number of the same priorities you do, meaning you’re in good company.

Often people who volunteer in overseas communities comment on how much they gained from the experience: you’ll gain a different perspective, a number of new skills, a great group of friends and the opportunity to make a tangible difference somewhere that really needs it.

I don’t think the question is why volunteer? But rather why not volunteer?!
