As it says, there are subjects that are not included in the academic curriculum and there are things that are not learned in the classroom. Volunteering could be a practical part that comes in handy to any student and anyone in general. His character of “voluntary” implies that something is optional and that each individual chooses, but what is clear is that it is an activity that sum. Know, learn, discover and realize things that inevitably make you grow as a person.
There have been several experiences which, until today, I had to volunteer. This I’m living now, to begin with, is the adventure that I lived farther from my house. But are not the kilometers which more makes the difference. In this case that distance is directly proportional to the change of life, culture, customs, landscapes and a myriad of aspects that are completely transformed, allowing me to absorb all these new things and turning my backpack in a sponge that increasingly travels soaked experiences. Aspects that help you for your professional development, but above all, for personal development (adaptation, pro-activity, improvisation and so on).
In addition, there is something fundamental that also makes a difference and making volunteering a unique experience that promotes personal development. Travel concept, really getting involved with the country and people, working closely with totally different people, giving your best hand and getting all that an experience like this can give you.
