International Volunteering 101


Who can I volunteer with? What kinds of projects are available? How do I choose the right opportunity for me? These topics and more will be discussed by a panel of representatives from volunteer-sending organizations with opportunities around the globe.


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.
