Get Prepared

As is emphasized throughout this site, preparation is essential to a fruitful and fulfilling volunteer expedition. Once your itinerary is established, you need to lay plans that take into account your personal safety away from home, the measures that need to be in place while you are away from home, and a variety of aspects related to the trip itself. In essence, you need to prepare a toolkit of preparation. We’ve taken the liberty of supplying you with a few important instruments for your toolkit.
