EPISODE SLICE #40: Volunteering Abroad – What You Need to Know

Atlas Sliced special episode week! This week, you’re getting FIVE interviews instead of one. Each day of the week, a different person from Go Overseas is on the show to talk about a unique topic. Today’s topic: Volunteering overseas. 

How do you go about volunteering overseas? What is the process like? How do you choose a good program? Katie Boyer, Volunteer Abroad Director of Go Overseas, is here to answer these questions and talk about making the most of your volunteer experience abroad.

Here are some more highlights from the interview:

  • Her own personal volunteer experiences (love these)
  • Why volunteer when you can just travel? What’s in it for you?
  • Ideas for how to make international volunteering more affordable (Check out Volunteer Forever)
  • Why paid programs can be a good starting point for newer travelers
  • How unpaid programs allow you more independence than paid programs
  • Advice on choosing a volunteer program (transparency is a plus)
  • Character traits for having a positive volunteer experience
  • Most popular countries to volunteer
  • Her biggest lessons learned from volunteering abroad

A big thanks to Katie for contributing to this special week! Make sure to visit Go Overseas’ Volunteer Homepage for more details on volunteering abroad.
