Learn About the Country Where You Will be Volunteering
Get excited about the country where you will be volunteering abroad. Before leaving to volunteer, research the culture, history and current events. Also, try learning a few important phrases, like “hello” and “I am a volunteer,” in the native language. The more you know before you go, the better you will be able to interact with your new surroundings. Once you have arrived, put this information to use and explore.
