Do you enjoy traveling and getting to know other cultures?

Are you motivated to give something back and to help?

Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone?

If you answered all these questions with yes, volunteering abroad will be a life-changing experience for you. You will experience different cultures, traditions, and other lifestyles. 

However, volunteering abroad is not suited for everyone and if it is not the right time or if you are not well prepared, things might take a less desirable turn. But you always have to keep in mind that a little uncertainty and a few worries are ordinary feelings before setting forth on a new adventure. 

You don't just have to prepare your trip to volunteer abroad, you have to prepare yourself, set your realistic expectations and think about what you want to achieve. Make sure you are fully prepared by reading our volunteer tips.
