The start of a new year is often a time when we consider how we can better ourselves by being healthier, learning a new skill or by being more selfless. Volunteering is a great way to achieve all three and give something back to the community.
Did you know that 34 per cent of the adult population in Australia contribute more than 700 million hours each year volunteering? Being generous with your time can be a great way to get out of the house and meet new people.
Volunteering overseas, sometimes called voluntourism, is all about giving something back while you travel. Overseas volunteer programs can run for anything from one week to a year.
