Have you been thinking about volunteering abroad, but aren’t sure how to go about it? If you’re wondering where to go, how long you can afford to stay, and how you can be sure you’ll contribute to a meaningful and positive impact, here are two free events that might help:
- IVPA Global Volunteering Fair in Washington, DC (Tuesday, Oct. 25): www.dcglobalvolunteerfair.eventbrite.com
- IVPA Global Volunteering Fair in New York City (Thursday, Oct. 27): www.nycglobalvolunteerfair.eventbrite.com
At these free events, you can chat with representatives from organizations that lead volunteer projects in communities around the globe. You can also attend free workshops—sponsored by Cross-Cultural Solutions—on the basics of international service and strategies for making volunteering abroad more affordable.
Our former colleague Erin Barnhart is coordinating these fairs along with the International Volunteer Programs Association (IVPA), so we’re sure they’ll be beautifully organized and full of valuable info. Click the Eventbrite links above for the full details and to RSVP. And let us know if you go check ’em out!
And if you can’t make it to one of these events, check out our International Volunteering Resource Center.
