Volunteering as a social worker abroad gives you the opportunity to provide essential support to children, young people, and adults alike who are vulnerable and in need. Social work development programs encourage volunteers to actively take part in training, practice, and evaluating results over time. Placements are available all over the world, from India to Ghana to Thailand, and in all kinds of different communities.
Volunteer social work abroad is a great way to help people in need, and also to gain invaluable experience if you are interested in a career in social care. Your duties can often be difficult, as you will work with people who have suffered neglect, abuse, and exploitation. Routine tasks may include running workshops on key social subjects, organising and managing support services, maintaining accurate records, and more.
