How to Prepare to Volunteer Abroad

Volunteering abroad is a worthwhile experience that allows you to help a community while really getting to know a culture. While rewarding, there is a lot of preparation, both physical and mental, that is necessary to get you ready for a volunteer vacation. I am postgraduate in Hospitality and I Volunteered at an old age home in Hong Kong through http://www.theinterngroup.com/hong-kong/ and I can tell you that you need a good preparation for this.To get an idea of what to expect, it's a good idea to connect with past volunteers. Ask them their opinion of the organization, what went well, what went wrong, what to expect and what to pack. The next important step is to really make a difference, try to find a project where you can really utilize your skills. If you've studied medicine, help take care of sick children or do hospital work. If you're good with kids or enjoy teaching, sign up for an orphanage project or teach English. And if you're not sure where you'd be best placed, ask the organization you're going through where the most help is needed.
