I am lucky to be spending this week with one of IVPA’s outstanding member organizations, Cross-Cultural Solutions. I am participating in their week long, Insight Abroad program and will be volunteering with children. While here in Morocco I will also be visiting some of IVPA’s other great members’ volunteer programs, Projects Abroad and ProWorld.
I am excited to get back on the ground and experience a new culture and country as a volunteer again. I’ll be posting a bit about my experience and the opportunities to volunteer here in Morocco.
There are many opportunities for volunteers in Morocco. Here in Rabat with Cross-Cultural Solutions you can choose to do a week-long insight abroad program or the volunteer experience (2+ weeks) or internship (4+weeks). Opportunities include caregiving, teaching, community development and health.
Projects Abroad, also in Rabat, offers opportunities to”anyone interested in volunteering in the developing world, including those on a college summer break, gap year, career break or volunteer vacation”. Projects Abroad’s volunteer work and internships include a home stays and opportunities in Teaching, Care and Sports as well as language courses in both Arabic and French. There are also many opportunities to get out and experience the culture of Morocco.
ProWorld has recently opened a Moroccan site in Meknes that offers volunteer and internship opportunities around youth development, literacy, business training and community development.
More to come!
