A Broader View Volunteer Corp makes volunteering abroad possible for people with limited time by providing the opportunity to experience another culture while making a real difference in people’s lives. Programs range from 1 to 24 weeks. A Broader View Volunteer programs are open to people of all ages and backgrounds. Volunteers are given customized placements based on their skills and interests, and work side-by-side with local people on community-led initiatives. Volunteers work with infants and disadvantaged children, teenagers, adults, the elderly, and people with special needs like HIV/AIDS or mental or physical disabilities, with environmental and conservation and animal welfare causes.
“Many people are searching for a way to really make a difference,” says Sarah Comitale, Executive Director of ABV. “We give people the change to discover that volunteering overseas is no longer just a dream, but something they can actually do.”
