One of the best that I've heard of is the VSO charity. They are pretty big and work all over the world. I think they have a Youth section. Google it.
I'm sure that there will be some org that will want the assistance. Keep on looking. Sorry VSO is no good.
I accept voluntary labour
The NGO type work is one of those businesses were its who you know, not what you know. Very few of them accept 'volunteers' believe it or not as it is too difficult to manage them, house etc, cheaper to actually pay locals most of the time.
The only real volunteers I have come across are those connected with church groups, that sort of thing. Even then they expect you to put yourself on a plane and get there, you will normally be housed with a local 'well to do' family (<not the standard you would expect in the UK btw).
Can I ask how old you are and how long you're prepared to volunteer for?
If you are serious I might be able to help, my email is in trust. I have no desire to 'chat' in public and reveal my personal details
You'll get an automated email asking for you to verify your email address, just so you know!
This dude sounds scary.
The filter will pick up on the fact he is from Liverpool, got to be very careful with people from that part of the UK, you'll understand of course.
I did volunteer work in japan 3 times, 9 weeks in one place. it's generally helping out farms and stuff like that, but there are a number of hosts that take you on, its not volunteer work on a mega scale like official organisation and stuff, but check out http://www.wwoofjapan.com/ ask me any question if you want, i had a interesting time and met many people while woofing. there are many other countries you can wwoof as well.
You've probably been nabbed by the Spam filter then. Can you give me part of your email address that I can recognise? I need to trawl through all of the rejected emails (and there's lots!). Or if you could give me the time you sent it? Helps narrow down the search.
I hear the cartoon artists guild are looking for volunteers for their branch in Syria ........
Ive had a couple of mates that did volunteer work..I was amazed to hear that many of these volunteer places actually charge you
What kind of volunteer work do you wanna do? Just an experience or do you actually wanna help people who need help?
