Retired Volunteers, go abroad but first think about

Now that you are a retired baby boomer, what can you offer as a volunteer? What do you want to do? What local support do you want? How much can you spend? What do you want from your volunteering, new friends, experiences, adventures, meaningful work? 

Match your answers to find the best volunteer option, the right organization for you.  We are here and happy to help you!

An international agency offers lots of extra services.

However, at a cost!

A local nonprofit, NGO, can offer important local services like a culture, language and volunteer training, local support by helpful and thankful local people and local expertise finding the right project for you and in a free application process.  

No 3 star accommodation but less expensive!

Do you need a lot of structure, support and services? If, so, a more expensive volunteer agency might be your choice. Are you more confident but do want local support all the way then Openmind Projects is a great choice!
