I want to travel the world and volunteer my time. I currently work as an RN so I hope that my skills will come in handy. I am grateful for the life I have so giving back to others is my way of showing that appreciation.
In the US I have been to all the New England states, Florida, Colorado, Washington State, and Texas. I have been to Montreal and Costa Rica.
I have not participated on a volunteer-based trip because is quite a daunting task to sort through all the information on the web.
I would like to meet like-minded people and find the opprtunity to travel/volunteer abroad.
I met some really great people. This meetup was so helpful because I had been thinking of joining the peace corps so this came along at the perfect time! Thank you so much for a good night.
Hi Tristan. I really look forward to meeting you. We are all in the same boat here, and maybe we can provide some laughs and warmth on the journey.
Hi Tristan. Can't wait to hear your story, and to hear about your experiences. Thank you so much for joining. I look forward to meeting you.
Hi Tristan! Thanks for joining :-) I hope we can help you become less shy! I have that problem as well sometimes - when I'm by myself I can just dance and not worry about it, but I can close up a bit when around new people. We can all work together to get over our fears ^.^
Hi Tristan, Thanks so much for joining Boston International Volunteers and welcome! We're going to be hosting our next meetup on September 12th with the Peace Corps, who will be discussing ways to get involved with the Peace Corps and the benefits of volunteering abroad. I hope to see you there!
