Read on to find out why Gapforce would recommend volunteering abroad!

“Volunteering abroad is a fantastic opportunity for anyone seeking a foreign adventure with the added bonus that you are contributing to a wider cause. Spending your time volunteering overseas will not only be a rewarding opportunity but the experience will be sure to shape your values and professional development when it comes to future employment.

Many people sign up to a volunteering opportunity abroad as they will enhance your personal development skills and increase your cultural awareness. These highly regarded skills will not only help you to succeed in a professional working environment, but, they will also define you as an individual who is well researched, pro-active and has the right attitude to assist charities and recruiters.”
