Global Volunteering Fair

31 Jan

Ever wondered what it would be like to pack a bag and head abroad to volunteer for a little while? Have no idea how to start that process? Then head to Barnard College tomorrow (Feburary 1st) for the Idealist.org Global Volunteering Fair from 6-9pm. According to the website, you’ll be able to “learn more about programs and global opportunities offered by a diverse range of volunteer-sending organizations,” as well as attend informative workshops, such as “International Volunteerism 101” and “The Cost of Doing Good: Affordable Options for Volunteering Abroad.” There will be about 27 organizations present, including Global Citizens Network, Peace Corps and Visions in Action.

The 2010 fairs will also take place February 3rd in Philadelphia, February 4th in D.C., February 22 in Chicago and Feburary 25th in L.A.

You can register for free by clicking here, though it isn’t mandatory that you register beforehand. I unfortunately won’t be able to attend, so I’d love some feedback on the event!
