Short-term voluntary work for those with work experience
For those with a limited amount of time, World Volunteers lists projects lasting up to a month in developing countries where ANY professional experience is precious. Many of the organisations listed are from the countries needing help. An opportunity to spend a unique working holiday the benefits of which do not end after your return home.
Long-term voluntary work
For people who have retired, workers who can spend a some time away from work on leave, college leavers, those looking for work and everyone wanting to start a career in International Development, World Volunteers lists many organisations offering the chance to work in developing countries for from a few months to several years. A chance to begin a new life, or to pass on your skills and experience at the end of a long professional career.
The guide describes over 180 organisations, but there are thousands more needing volunteers around the world, most of which have a presence on the Internet.
The information given on how to become a volunteer including preparation, costs, expectations along with the tools for finding more opportunities on the Internet allow everyone - including those who are new to international volunteering - to plan a period overseas.
