Strategies for Making International Service More Affordable
Between airfare, living expenses, and potential program fees, the cost of doing good abroad can really add up. Fortunately, there are lots of great options to fit what you can afford. This workshop will cover tips and ideas for budgeting, raising funds, and finding the right international volunteer opportunity for you – whether it’s with a global service organization that provides you with transportation and a stipend, paying for an all-inclusive volunteer abroad program, or going abroad on your own.
From Volunteer to Career
Many volunteers express that their experiences abroad profoundly impact their lives and want to continue on in a career in the international volunteer field. Hear from a panel of professionals about their own experiences and tips on building a career.
