International Student Volunteers is hosting information meetings about incredible opportunities this summer to volunteer in summer programs in Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica (Central America), Dominican Republic (Caribbean), Ecuador (South America), Thailand (South East Asia) and South Africa!
Since 2002 over 20,000 participants have volunteered with ISV, contributing to environmental, conservation and humanitarian efforts and fostering responsible travel and cultural awareness around the world. Students can travel with a purpose and literally change their life and the lives of those that they help (or the natural world) through their efforts.
Make sure you come to the ISV information meetings this week for more information. They’ll be held in:
THURSDAY OCTOBER 6 !
At the Best Western Conference Centre, Pine Room A, entrance on Stone Rd.
Every hour on the half hour from 9.30am – 5.30pm.
Travelling in a group, alongside highly trained project and tour leaders, students will spend the first two weeks volunteering in meaningful and hands on-projects in either social community development or conservation. Your project could see you volunteering in many projects such and working with rescued elephants, orphaned children, researching rainforest species or building schools and houses.
The second two weeks will see participants launch into an adrenaline filled cultural and adventure tour of their chosen country, involving such activities as a three-day white water rafting adventure, glacier climbing, waterfall rappelling, scuba diving and jungle kayaking.
The ISV program is a great way for you to travel with a purpose and make a difference with your summer. This is your chance to join over 4000 volunteers from around the world on the adventure of a lifetime. If you’re interested please stop by and visit the ISV Reps at their meeting this week.
There is absolutely no commitment whatsoever as it is an information meeting only.
Some exciting things covered in the information meeting are:
- How ISV can send you information and ideas on how to raise funds to offset the cost of the program.
- The possibility of earning academic credit for your participation
- How you can tailor your program to last anywhere from two weeks to three months
- Optional excursions including: Spanish language/Latin dancing lessons (Spanish speaking countries only.) Galapagos Island and Peru- Machu Picchu excursions
ISV has nearly 30 years of student travel experience and was last year selected as one of the top 10 volunteer programs in the world by the US Centre for Citizen Diplomacy. Come to this weeks information meeting to find out why ISV has an incredible average student rating of 4.8 out of 5 and why over 4000 volunteers join ISV each year.
Furthermore, I'd like to encourage you to get online and check out the ISV website: www.isvolunteers.org to find out additional information.
This is an incredible opportunity to travel with a purpose this summer. We look forward to meeting you at the campus information meeting!
