Volunteering with disadvantaged youth and children will make you appreciate what you usually take for granted. Things like running water, electricity and easy access to technology are a basic staple in most first world countries, although to others all these things and more are completely unreachable. Even basic food supplies and clean water are hard to come by and disease is easily caught from others who are unaware of how to prevent it spreading.
Imagine you were a child or young person living in this type of environment. Wouldn’t you want somebody to help guide you from right and wrong, to teach you life skills and encourage you to get an education so that you can build a better world for the next generation of young people?
These disadvantaged children are counting on volunteers like you to help build their communities. Disadvantaged youth will look up to you for guidance, while disadvantaged children might need your help to complete even the simplest of tasks. There are a range of programs you can get involved in all over the world so get searching now and help disadvantaged youth and children all over the world.
