Are you interested in travelling, seeing the world, broadening your horizons, meeting new people, gaining new personal experiences and enhancing your work experience? Sounds good - but have no idea where to begin? Then download Steps Around the World, a new guide from Volunteer Now that aims to give you an idea of the opportunities that are available for short-term volunteering outside of Northern Ireland.
You should think about building your skills locally before you go away to volunteer internationally. This will prepare you and help you develop a range of skills before you go. To find an opportunity in your area check out www.volunteernow.co.uk for a vast range of opportunities to help you get started.
If you still have questions after reading the guide and would like to find out more information about overseas volunteering and what opportunities are available contact the Youth Team.
