Did you know that volunteering abroad can enhance your employability and much more?
In addition to getting an experience that you might not have access to at home, such as interning in a hospital, there are many other benefits including:
- Building new skills, like a diving certification or basic medical skills.
- Developing soft skills that employers love like time management, cross-cultural communication, and teamwork.
- Making new friends as you build your professional network.
- Leaving an impact that benefits others.
- Confirming the path you want to be on, whether it is personal, professional, or both.
So, picture this: You’re surrounded by the stunning Peru’s Amazon rainforest, living and working with local people. You spend your days effortlessly learning Spanish while spreading environmental awareness.
Who knew learning could be so much fun?! You’ll come home with something tangible to add to your CV plus a smile on your face.
By combining learning with life experience, you’ll have the type of hands-on practical experience that employers and universities really value — propelling you towards your dream job or academic outcome.
“Overall, the Projects Abroad Fiji experience changed my life. It offers so many things for the volunteer; you learn from the students, you learn from the other volunteers who are from all walks of life, you learn from your host family, you can learn a new language, you teach others about yourself and most importantly, you learn a ton about yourself by living with and helping others.”
