Completing voluntary work in an overseas country is a great way for students to really taste life and another culture while making new friends and gaining new levels of confidence. Projects Abroad offers voluntary work projects in 28 developing countries around the world.
Projects Abroad (www.projects-abroad.com.au) offers GAP Year placements from one month to six months. The website is fantastic. Find the map of the world (http://www.projects-abroad.com.au/why-projects-abroad/gap-year-volunteer-work/) and click onto the country you are interested in. Here you will find information on the opportunities available in this country. The options are endless and sound exciting as well as very rewarding. Experiences can be life-changing for a young person and memories as well as friendships developed will last a lifetime. Volunteer Stories are a must-read and show the extent to which a volunteering experience can touch young people and open their eyes to other cultures as well as helping them gain greater self-understanding and new insights into future careers.
