CAREER BREAK VOLUNTEERING ABROAD
Has the thought of a career break ever entered into your mind? Well you certainly won’t be alone. With a career break, you have the freedom to do things that you might have missed when you were younger or have been meaning to do for years, but never quite found the right time or opportunity.
While many career breakers use this freedom to start new business ventures, try their hand at freelancing or retrain, many might decide to remove themselves completely from what they know, and go travelling. And this is where we come in! By volunteering abroad during a career break, you get to travel and see the world, learn about and immerse yourself in a new and different culture, discover a unknown passion, learn a new skill or even find a new career path. Sounds extreme, but it happens!
If you want to make a difference but are pushed for time you can always consider short term volunteering abroad during your career break or click here to view some ideas for volunteer vacations abroad.
WHY TAKE A CAREER BREAK VOLUNTEERING ABROAD?
Recharge and refocus
It’s easy to get stuck into a daily routine or the standard 9 to 5, but there’s no reason why it has to stay like that. Taking a break from the grind and doing something like volunteering can lift you out of your comfort zone and into new and exciting experiences. You might even feel better for it! All you need to do is take that step…
Discover a new career path
…and who knows, you might even discover that the 9 to 5 wasn’t even meant for you in the first place! You won’t be the first, and you certainly won’t be the last to potentially discover a new career path.
