Program Details

Because this is such a broad field, there are a huge number of volunteer projects that can fall under the community social service program.


Activities & Shift

Daily general volunteer activities can include playing creative games like coaching sports, participating in slum and community outreaches. These projects can be really tiring placements which can be very emotional but also amazing, the work you will do will be greatly received and you can make a difference regardless of your background and skills set.


Rules

One of the advantages of the Community volunteer projects is that you are not limited to one job role and will have the opportunity to ‘sample’ other roles during your placement.
