You want to find ways to make a positive impact in the world but you’re unsure. Participating in a life changing volunteer project is more than just showing up. You need to overcome that debilitating attitude.
Here are things you need to know to have a truly transformational volunteer experience:
- Volunteering is really an awesome way to gain insights into the lives of people, helping unfamiliar faces in a safe and supportive environment, with a team behind you, so relax.
- Volunteering whilst traveling is a mix of endurance and resilience. It makes you a better person, and volunteering enables you to see it all – from the front line to behind the scenes. But you develop to have a well rounded personality that will help you and your children.
- Be honest about your limitations. If you need help, ask. You may be surprised to find people who are more understanding and considerate of your imperfections.
- Don’t be afraid. Comfort zones are meant to be enlarged. Working outside your comfort zone means new discoveries, new perspectives & new ways of being you. You will end up transformed as you transform the lives of others.
So get out there and experience a luxury voluntourism adventure!
