It’s Proven: Volunteering is Good for Your Health!
Preparations for senior volunteers overseas and in the USA
“My ten trips with Global Volunteers have added whole new meaning and purpose to my life, in my retirement after 45 years as a graphic designer. Each one’s been totally worth every penny – plus all expenses are tax deductible! Previous experience is not necessary. I urge curious travelers to go.”
“As a lifelong learner, I’ve been either a student, a teacher or both my entire life. Since I retired from active employment several years ago, I have enjoyed the freedom to not only continue my roles as student and teacher but also to expand them in service to others.”
“Being a servant to others, giving my time and talents with no requirement for anything in return, was very rewarding. Almost everyone I met in one way or another thanked me just for coming there.”
“If, once you reach a certain age, you never do anything that makes you nervous, it means you’re not really challenging yourself. There’s still so much out there to try.”
