Impact the Globe this Summer by Discovering Volunteering Solutions

Volunteering Solutions

It is not too late to make summer 2016 your most adventurous, rewarding and benevolent summer yet! Volunteering Solutions provides hundreds of volunteer and internship programs all over the world, namely in Asia, Africa, and South America.

Founded in 2006 as a member of the World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation, Volunteering Solutions was created to give high school students and older their ideal travel and service expedition. Since then, their staff has guided hundreds of explorers through the journey of their choice, while working to improve the well being of various communities worldwide.

One element that makes the organization stand out: its flexibility. A volunteer can customize when, where, and how long they would like to stay, from a week to over a month. Staff and support are available at all of their locations year-round, ready to guide each user's travel and safety proceedings. The pricing for food, housing, community support, and keeping the company afloat, is also accommodating: prices start as low as $200.

Joining the Volunteering Solutions team means having a hand in improving a third-world community's quality of life, while also gaining experience in a field of interest. Opportunities in service work include medicine, education, disabled or child care, environmental conservation, and women empowerment. One can pursue internships abroad as well, in fields such as healthcare and journalism.

Of course, a large aspect of volunteering abroad is the potential to make exciting memories with new friends from all over the globe. Volunteering Solutions ensures that each altruist takes in all the beauty, culture, and one-of-a-kind experiences that the country they are supporting has to offer. One can stay with a local family or a volunteer homestead, ranging from rural villages to vast cities. Evenings and weekends are free for volunteers to explore, and the organization's staff members are happy to provide assistance in planning safe and exciting local getaways.

The summer volunteer programs are where Volunteering Solutions really shines. For up to a month, volunteers can explore various destinations within their country of choice: Thailand, India, Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania, or Nepal. Upon registration, volunteers are equipped with the resources to travel from place to place within a nation, both working hard and experiencing all the must-see tourist stops. Some examples of "work breaks" one can enjoy include hiking the Himalayas, riding an elephant, and witnessing a traditional African drum circle.

If you desire substantial altruism achievements while making lifelong friends and memories, then Volunteering Solutions may be for you. Visit their website for day-by-day itineraries, FAQs, and a detailed search tool to find your perfect volunteering solution!
