What motivated you to participate in international volunteering? Write about your experiences in the MaailmanVaihtoa – Volunteers’ Voices magazine

Write about your experiences

Maailmanvaihto sends and receives international volunteer workers for periods of 6 to 12 months both in Finland and abroad. Even though we are a youth organization, our volunteers have widely varying backgrounds: some have just graduated from upper secondary education, some are spending a gap year, some have already some professional experience…

Have you participated in an international volunteer program via Maailmanvaihto? What kind of motivations and expectations did you have prior to leaving abroad? Did your experience change your perspective or thoughts? Did you get what you expected? Were you surprised by something? Which kinds of things kept up or increased your motivation?

Would you like to write about your experience in the upcoming issue of Volunteers’ Voices? We also welcome photographs and illustrations! Please contact us with your suggestions by June 20th 2021. The deadline for materials is August 1st 2021. Contact address: maailmanvaihtoalehti@maailmanvaihto.fi.
