Thinking of volunteering overseas in 2016?

Thinking of volunteering this year?

VC has been recruiting, training and placing skilled people on projects overseas for over 56 years and we have learned a few things…

Guarantee that your time volunteering will make the best impact – prepare, prepare and prepare!
Get to know the issues and the root causes of global injustice
Get to know yourself!
Go only where you are needed

Our part-time overseas development training programme Venture 2016 (one weekend per month over 4 months at VC HQ) is aimed at prospective Development Workers and Volunteers and offers an experience that will give the volunteer or development worker the confidence that he/she is fully prepared to work overseas.  

The programme now features a module on Baseline Research Methodologies – essential for helping to design needs based projects.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course it gave me valuable info on volunteering overseas and I learned a lot about my own strengths and weaknesses which surprised me somewhat at times!”  – J.M. Venture 2015

“Many thanks again for the hard work that went into our training programme last year. It really was an eye-opening and life-changing experience for me. I’m in touch with another Venture colleague and am really delighted that she’s settling into her new post overseas. It gives me great hope that I can do the same!” – T.K. Venture 2015
