January is the perfect time for change. With a whole year ahead, now is the opportunity to plan a fresh start. Whether you’re looking to develop your skills, enhance your job prospects or simply have a once in a life time adventure, travel ticks all these boxes.
Life’s ‘How To”
Travel and personal development go hand in hand, so if you’re looking to enhance your skills and do good, volunteering whilst travelling is a great way of achieving this.
Arguably, one of the best things about travelling is the people you meet: learning how to relate to others, communicate with people of different cultures (and quite often different languages) and navigate new environments are invaluable skills you can master whilst volunteering on your gap travel this year.
Gap Year + Employer = Improved Opportunities
Volunteering on your travels undoubtedly bring out the best in everyone: 3 months of overseas voluntary work provides you with life-skills that employers love, from showing initiative and improved communication to real-life decision making. It’s also worth bearing in mind what your gap year says to future employers and demonstrates how you can stand out from the crowd (hint: helping to build primary schools in rural areas and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro will be viewed more favourably than a month long pub crawl!). Travelling after school or uni, or even taking a break from work can breathe new life into your CV, and gives you some awesome experiences that set you apart from other applicants in the pile.
New Year, New You
Pack your bags and prepare for a year like no other: working in local communities across the globe creates a positive change that improves lives, for life.
Whatever your interests there’s an ideal project for you: from preserving and protecting primates in Kenya, to building pre-school facilities in Asia or contributing to sustainable conservation projects in South America. Dive, trek, build and safari through the year, whilst making a difference to local communities. Every Camps project started is completed, and with over 100 active projects across the world that gives you the opportunity to make a huge impact and fill your year with adventure…2017 is your year, let’s make a difference together.
