When you choose to volunteer abroad, you know the country you'll be travelling to is different from home. To prepare you for this experience in a new country with a different culture, we've put together in-depth cultural awareness training for you. We want you to feel and be prepared before you arrive in destination. It's all included in your fee.
More about our free cultural awareness training
We hope our teaser got you excited for your volunteer journey ahead. After completing our full Travel Diary, you'll have received a proper introduction to the countries culture. You'll even be familiar with some basic phrasings in the local language and a few interactions.
This will make you feel especially included when you stay with your host family. You’ll be able to interact with them because you already understand their culture. You may even recognise some of the things they do or say because of your cultural awareness training. This will make your time there more enjoyable.
Travelling to a new country can be scary sometimes. With the support of our staff, along with the cultural and sensitivity training we offer, you’ll find yourself transformed by travel.
