If you found this blog, you are probably looking for a little more information before you click that sign up button. And you aren’t alone. One of the main question we get asked, is whether you are able to make a real impact on such a short trip. And the quick answer is YES!
Our high school volunteer trips abroad are designed for you in mind. This means that the projects fit perfectly into your (generally short) high school holidays. However, the fact that time is limited, doesn’t mean that you can’t make a difference.
All of our projects have long-term goals that were set up with the help of local community members. These are the goals that you’ll work towards, and the volunteers who succeed you. With these goals in mind, you are able to meet the real needs of the community and contribute towards a long-lasting, positive impact. Our High School Special projects are no exception to this rule. Because of your combined effort as a group, plenty of work can be done in a short period.
To give you a clearer idea of the impact you can make when volunteering abroad as a high school student, we have listed some achievements below. More than 1750 volunteers from around the world contributed to these impressive numbers last summer.
