1. You will become more globally appreciative
This might be your first long-distance trip overseas; an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of global issues, developing communities and the wider world around you. Sounds terrible, right?
2. There’s a chance you will develop invaluable skills
You will mix with like-minded people, face situations which will involve listening to one another and overcoming obstacles as a team. Not only this, but you will learn a whole lot about yourself and your capabilities. If you’d prefer this didn’t happen, perhaps an African Adventure isn’t for you?
3. It will work wonders for your personal development
A volunteer experience in Africa will work wonders for your confidence as you encounter new experiences, take on new challenges and build resilience. If you don’t wish to become a more self-assured person, then steer well clear.
4. You could gain a whole new perspective
An African Adventure will open your mind, broaden your horizon and change the way you view the world. If you’d prefer to have a narrower, less well-rounded outlook, it’s best to stay away.
5. There’s the risk of creating meaningful change
However, if you think a meaningful volunteer experience sounds like your thing then you can find your ideal group volunteer experience here. You can see exactly how much this experience will cost here. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
