Where Do I Start?

Thinking about volunteering internationally? Wondering what kind of ‘development’ the world needs right now?

Curious as to why the language we use around development, volunteering and change, matters?

Interested in different ways of being active for change?

If you’re curious about digging deeper into any of these questions, then these resources are for you. Welcome !!

Inside each resource you’ll find some interesting reading, great videos, useful questions, interactive activities and finally spaces for you to jot down your thoughts. There are four resources in total, with each topic taking 30 – 40 minutes to move through (excluding viewing of video links.) You can work your way through the resources on the move, or at home from your computer.

Where to start? While we would encourage you to work your way through all four topics, why not start with the topic that most interests you and go from there. That’s it from us! Over to you! Enjoy….
