International Student Volunteer

Regina Said:

Raising money to offset the cost of an International Student Volunteer trip?

We Answered:

Will your parents help you out at all? Other family members?

First, I would check with a local newspaper in your HOMETOWN (not college town) and see if they would let you write an article that documents your travels/experience. If so, you could EASILY get local businesses to help sponsor you because you would mention them in the article ("all the people that made it possible") and it's FREE advertising for them! (Well, besides what they donate to your trip)

Just a thought...good luck!

Bertha Said:

Anyone know about International Student Volunteers?

We Answered:

I traveled to Costa Rica with ISV and had an amazing time and I would definitely recommend volunteering and traveling with them. I volunteered in a local community and met a bunch of awesome people along the way. The adventure part of the trip was also amazing as I had never done so many crazy exciting things before. Personally, I think it is well worth it!!

Felix Said:

volunteer laws for International students on a student permit in Canada?

We Answered:

Call the United Way
I don't think you can volunteer as a doctor though

Terri Said:

Could an international student get a volunteer work in Australia charity and how to find?

We Answered:

Yes you can volunteer for charity work..try....
Saint Vincent De Paul
Salvation Army
RSPCA...animal shelter
Nursing Homes (old age peoples homes)
Soup Kitchens (for homeless people)
You can not volunteer for work at hotels or businesses as they are by law required to pay you a wage.
Google any of these places or look for businesses in www.yellowpages.com.au

Does anyone have International Student Volunteer (Costa Rica) experiences and advice?

We Answered:

Hi!
Ya, i actually traveled through ISV to Costa Rica in 2008. I travel a lot as it is and Costa Rica is my new favorite country. I'm sure you've seen pictures but it is beautiful and filled with wildlife.
I did 1 week Spanish lesson, 2 week volunteer work and 2 week adventure tour. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot about Costa Rica. I think what i liked most about it was feeling like i was living there, not just visiting.

I can give you a couple of really useful tips i should have listened to when i went.
1. Bring lots and lots of bug spray. I brought a new bottle and ran out within the 2nd week. My project involved staying in the jungle working with birds. Every night there were thousands of bugs.
2. Don't worry about buying a mosquito net. It takes up too much space in your luggage.Plus most hotels and projects will provide a net
3. You'll have plenty of chances to take a shower. In the jungle it's fresh water but in the city, like Heredia or San Juan, if you want hot water you have to turn the water to the lowest pressure. Its not much water but if you want it warm that's what you'll have to do.
4. Bring a flashlight
5. There are thousands of bugs but just ignore them and it really won't bother you after like the 4th day.
6. Bring lots of memory card space. Costa Rica is so beautiful and you'll see lots of exotic animals it's amazing.

If you have the funds for the spanish lesson i highly recommend that. I think the spanish lesson was my favorite part. The school you'll go to is very convenient and they host events every night you don't have to pay for such as dance classes, cooking classes, and going to different clubs.

I think i've rambled on long enough. Hope this gives you a good idea of the country and what to expect. Oh and one more thing, the people there were all supper nice, friendly, and helpful!

Who knows about the International Student Volunteer Program?

We Answered:

Hey, I don't know about ISV but I know United Planet does volunteering trips abroad and their deposit is a lot less, and I believe you can get info before that if you just call them (1-800-292-2316). They do trips to both Costa Rica and Australia (and other places too).

A couple of my friends are all set to go for an ISV trip. But, I never had the idea that it would take such difficulty to go as one. This information has changed my mind and I realize how difficult it is .
