Exciting opportunities to volunteer in the summer of 2011

For many people, thinking ahead to next summer means deciding where to go on holiday. For some, expensive holidays are out of the question – disappointing, as they like to travel and experience new places and different cultures. Other people simply recognise that it is rewarding to help those less fortunate than themselves.

Why not consider combining helping others with travelling overseas by being a volunteer abroad?
Volunteering abroad can change your life, and the life of others! It can help you gain new skills, improve self-confidence and look good on a CV! It will not break the bank either – WithOriginal Volunteers projects start from as little as £35 per week, including accommodation!

So if you are wondering what to do next year, why not consider volunteering in the summer of 2011? With over 100 projects to choose from, Original Volunteers are in 18 countries around the world. Whatever age or background you are from, the volunteer projects welcome everybody equally, and endeavour to encourage, and support your choices and decisions.

Original Volunteers offer affordable volunteering, unlimited choices, fantastic work opportunities, and a flexible approach – just some of the many reasons why so many people have chosen to go with them. Will you be joining them in the summer of 2011?

Whether your interest is children or animals, whether your preference is Africa or Asia, you can be sure to find something that suits you when you volunteer abroad in the summer of 2011. You might even enjoy it so much that you decide to return for a second time, as Rebecca Morgan from Herefordshire did. She returned to Ghana and says that “the hardest part of the placement was going home”.

Another volunteer, Sara-Jane who went to Mexico to work with disabled people and orphans, says: “Volunteering offers a different side to travelling and an insight into other cultures”.
