The platform is very organized and easy to read, which helps find the most suitable opportunities. But more importantly, the way that reviews are handled and that previous Worldpacker volunteers are listed on posts makes this website the most trustworthy one in my opinion, which for a solo female traveler is paramount.
I like the way it gives you the chance to not only visit another country but to feel like you are immersed there, living there, and have a family there.
It is a very interesting way to get to know people, places, and have experiences that bring you closer to the realities of the people who live in the places you visit, being able to transform the places and live the experiences with your own body.
Volunteering for me was an endless change both personally and socially. I grew as a person and related to others. So it is super RECOMMENDED.
As my first experience as a worldpacker, I wanted to do this more often, to travel, meet more and more people, learn about their culture and their ways of thinking. I recommend that everyone who wants to grow as a person and really wants to learn more about this world take part in volunteering. Volunteering is now my new hobby.
It allows you to travel economically, really get to know the culture of the place and most importantly: meet wonderful and different people, which allows you to open up and evolve in many ways!!
Worldpacker was always by my side, sending messages and saying 'Any problem, call us.' I didn't have any problems, but it's good to know that there is someone who will help us... Feeling more than protected is great! No words really, everything is perfect. And this won't be the first!!!!
In my opinion, the best way to learn about ourselves and also about the world is through traveling. When combined with volunteering, it allows you to get an even deeper sense of the chosen place and experience the local way of life. It's also nice to be able to give something back in exchange for the amazing memories you make on the journey.
A great place to find different opportunities to meet new people, gain experiences whether in different languages or skill, just about a good site to be at for potential new places you may have not been in!

I believe that Worldpackers helps you live experiences wherever you are in the world, accompanies you and guides you. I always recommend it to my traveling friends, and I talk to my family about this app. Very useful.
