Looking for a job?

If you are looking for a job or are taking a gap year trip, Travelteer is a great way to travel and gain important skills while making a difference.

In fact, in a study by The Corporation for National and Community Service, unemployed people who volunteer were 27% more likely to find a job than those who don’t. As a Travelteer not only do you have an opportunity to learn through volunteering, demonstrate your strengths, and work on weaknesses, but you get to build your social network of people along the way, many of whom have similar passions. Whether in between college and working, or just a weekend voluntourism trip, the opportunity to gain a real edge in the job market can be gained for any Travelteer who volunteers their time, makes a difference, and experiences a city like never before!  No wonder The Standford Review has stated that voluntourism trips are “the next executive training ground.”

Get experience

Travelteer also is a wonderful experience for fulfilling community service hours and building your resume for after college.

Instead of just going on a regular spring break trip with others, you and your friends can plan out your own custom alternative spring break as a Travelteer. Simply by booking volunteering opportunities around your schedule, you can make your trip into a chance for personal growth and help cultivate the community around you in the process. The best part about all this resume building is that at the end of the day you are doing something exciting and fun, creating memories as a Travelteer that will be with you for a lifetime!

Your time is appreciated

The amazing thing about Travelteer is that any time spent as an active Travelteer is needed and valuable to each organization who require volunteers, so they can further make an impact on the area.

Whether you are planning a vacation trip for a day, a week, or a month - booking a few shifts in various charities can help make an impact on the community and give much need time and care to a cause. The best part - you can Travelteer around your vacation schedule, so you can see the sites on top of giving back to the community.

New to volunteering

If you are new to volunteering, but are interested in Travelteer, we want to encourage you to experience the rewarding impact that voluntourism can have on the community and yourself.

Studies have shown that “volunteering leads to better health” and that “those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those that do not volunteer.” Being surrounded by positive, like-minded people, and getting a chance to give back, truly returns to you in health and happiness as you further your impact as a Travelteer. On my Travelteer trip, I found that the positivity gained through the volunteering was contagious and seeped into the experience of going out and exploring each unique city and culture.
