Benefits of youth volunteer opportunities abroad

It may seem like there are too many competing demands on your time in this fast paced modern world, but today I am going to tell you how giving up some of your valuable time can improve both your life and the lives of others.

Youth volunteer programs abroad give you the perfect opportunity to see the world and begin a process of self-improvement and discovery that can impact every facet of your life.

Studies have shown that youth who take part in volunteering have measurably improved interpersonal skills and more job opportunities.

It may sound strange to look at the personal benefits of volunteering, but this is a perfectly valid question.

Most volunteers find that they are far more committed and effective in their volunteer positions if they feel like they also are gaining something from the experience.

There are innumerable benefits to volunteering, but possibly the most important is getting out of your comfort zone and exploring your own personal limits.

With all of the volunteering programs for young adults shown below, you will be guaranteed a unique and genuine volunteering experience that will teach you valuable transferrable skills that could help you for the rest of your life.

Support an HIV/AIDS Program in India

While the disease itself is terrible, a major part of the problem for Indian HIV patients is the social stigma that comes with it. With our program in India, you can help to educate the local populace about the facts of HIV/AIDS and improve the life of those who suffer from this terrible disease.

Youth volunteer programs abroad such as this one are perfect for those who are interested in healthcare and health management in the future, or who simply want to improve their communication skills.

If you love sports and the outdoors, then this volunteer sport coaching opportunity could be just what you are looking for.

Just like in many of our youth volunteer programs abroad, it will be necessary to make do with often limited resources and there will be many challenges, but helping children discover a love of sport will make it all worthwhile.

Medical Volunteer in Ghana

Due to the poverty that is ever present in Ghana, people die every day from diseases that have been eradicated elsewhere or are easily treatable if there are enough resources available.

In Ghana, Globalcrossroad has volunteering opportunities for young people who are interested in helping Ghanaian doctors deliver life-saving treatment and slow the spread of disease through education programs.

As a part of our Ghana project, you will shadow local medical staff and learn by doing.

NGO Cambodia Volunteer Project

Cambodia may have a dark past, but as a part of our volunteering programs for young adults, you can help to build a brighter future.

In this program in Cambodia, we are specifically looking for volunteers with development experience or who would like to gain such experience. You will work alongside the local team to develop fundraising efforts and funding proposals.

Volunteer In Orphanage in Uganda

Uganda has been hit particularly by the global AIDS pandemic, leaving a large number of orphaned children that are cared for by orphanages all over the country.

We have a number of youth volunteer programs abroad that will allow you to travel to Uganda and provide much needed assistance in providing care for these orphaned children.

As part of our Ugandan orphanage work you will be working directly with the children and also assisting local staff to develop new programs for the orphanage.

Teach English Project

If you have a passion for teaching, then this could just be the volunteering opportunity you have been searching for.

Our Argentinian project focusses on giving underprivileged children the English skills they will need to be successful in an increasingly globalised world.

Like other volunteering programs for young adults that are focussed on education, experience is welcomed but definitely not necessary!
