Has anyone volunteered abroad?
May 10, 2012

My friend has been volunteering in Thailand for a week teaching English to various groups, and she's loving it. I think volunteering abroad is such a great opportunity to learn about another culture, interact with people from other parts of the world, and take actions on some global issues at the same time. I'll be going abroad myself to intern at a non-profit organization in the fall, and I'm very excited about it! Has anyone volunteered abroad? Why did you decide to do it? What was your experience like? Do you think you have made an impact on the issue that you were working with? How has the experience affected you upon your return home?

I'm very curious as to what you guys think about volunteering abroad in general as well, whether you've been or not smile

HI daniel, I never been a volunteer myself but I heard an amazing story of my friend whom became a volunteer in some of our outskirt area to teach indigenous people.

Though, language was tough to communicate with them (since they are used to native language), they never fail to attend class and try to get involved with her even with the means of using sign languages and drawings to express their ideas.

Besides the classroom environment, she is able to see for herself of the culture on how they worked together, communicate and even helped each other.

She's there for a week and she totally enjoyed it.

I have volunteered abroad last July, it was a fantastic experience, I really recommend it!

Check out my blog where I explain why I did it and how it went... but feel free to contact me if you have further questions, ok?

Hi!

I have volunteered abroad too! BUT I have mixed feelings. I was in Africa, and we all were very entusiastic to the local people, but they did not seem to care at all. :/

I've never tried it. If there is a chance, I want to volunteer. But what organization or agencies will ask for volunteers abroad? Im a student and i want to contribute and serve in the communities abroad especially in the poorest countries.
