Other Ways to Find Opportunities:
1. Find your favourite non-governmental organisation (NGO) and look for the opportunities on their website. If you don’t find any offers don’t hesitate to contact them via email or phone. Most of the times they are too busy to update their website, but probably need some spare hands, and will definitely appreciate your interest. Our fav NGOs are Survival International, WWF and Amnesty International. Here’s a pretty big list of NGOs worldwide.
2. Pick a topic that interests you and look for any related events – conferences, festivals, master-classes, etc. You’ll be surprised at how many options are out there, especially if you speak good English!
3. Get ta googl’n-the possibilities are endless! Here’s what we found after 2 mins of googling – help out the turtles, teach English in Sudan, work on organic farms, become a trek guide, assist on private luxury yachts, etc., etc. Who would’ve thought, right?
