Volunteering Abroad with Frontier Australia volunteer abroad

Volunteer Abroad

Anyone who volunteers abroad is opening a treasure chest of opportunities. Volunteering abroad gives you the chance to explore new passions or develop old ones further, find places you never knew existed and visit ones you’ve always dreamed of. The main reward of choosing to volunteer abroad however is the feeling of making a positive contribution to the global community, and the feeling of making a difference whilst you travel.

A volunteer placement abroad is also a chance to broaden your own horizons and become more aware of the challenges faced by the global community. By taking on the challenge of volunteering abroad, you’ll also be showing future employees that you are a motivated and conscientious individual, adaptable to new situations, and demonstrate yourself to be an international citizen.

Volunteer Opportunities

Whether you want to volunteer on a marine or terrestrial wildlife conservation, take part in a healthcare project or internship, teach English or sports coaching, or challenge yourself with some adventure travel, your options are practically limitless. Once you know what you want to do the next question is: where do you want to travel? Volunteering is full of possibilities and each experience is unique each volunteer; whether you’re trying to decide what to do or where to go, the choice is up to you.
Volunteering abroad can be a chance to learn new skills and gain qualifications that will add to your résumé upon returning home. You could learn to dive with PADI, gain a TEFL certificate or BTEC, earn a CoPE certificate, or become a FGASA qualified field guide, all whilst making a valuable contribution to fragile ecosystems or vulnerable people in marginalised communities.

You get out what you put in to a volunteer placement, so make sure you go in to volunteering with a positive and enthusiastic attitude. Many placements will offer the chance for volunteers to get involved in a variety of aspects, so make sure you’re aware of all the opportunities available to yourself in order to choose the right project for you. For instance, you might take part in a marine conservation project in east Africa where you also learn to dive, yet on your day off you might be encouraged to help with an environmental education day in a local school. The success of any volunteering placement is dependent on yourself being as flexible and motivated as possible to help where help is needed.
