    We know volunteering has so many potential how can you make sure you get the most out of what could very well be a once in a lifetime experience? Here are a few tips to help you do just that.

    -Be open to advice and what others have to teach you, especially if you’re in an unfamiliar country or environment.

    -Ensure that you know exactly what you’re hoping to gain from your volunteer experience, it will be easier to choose a program that will meet your needs and help you further your career.

    -State your qualifications clearly. You shouldn’t overstate or exaggerate your abilities just to get into the program you want or be given more responsibility early on.

    -Keep realistic expectations. Look at your volunteer experience as an opportunity to learn new things and strengthen your current skill set than as a chance to change the world.
