Lattitude Global Volunteering Information Evening

DO SOMETHING AMAZING BEFORE UNIVERSITY

Get overseas on your GAP YEAR

A world of possibilities awaits you!!!  volunteering overseas can benefit you enormously. You will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare you for continued education, employment and adult life. It will give you the point of difference that will make you stand out from the crowd. You will develop as a leader, a mentor, a teacher or a caregiver, as you take on responsible roles as a staff member at your placement. The skills you pick up look great on your CV, and will aid you not just in joining tertiary studies or the workforce, but in all your future pursuits.

You will gain an indepth understanding of a new country and culture. While most people want to travel, actually living in a new country is a far cry from being a tourist. It allows you to see the challenges different people face, and aids you in developing a global perspective. It is a unique and rewarding way to discover the world. Our destinations really need the support of volunteers like you, which makes the experience even more worthwhile. Plus, of course… you will have an AMAZING TIME! Discovering the world while you are young, in a structured and meaningful way, really will change your life! Lattitude can make all the arrangements for you and support you every step of the way. If you would like to leave your mark on a community abroad, while experiencing the adventure of a lifetime, a Lattitude placement could be for you!

Lattitude has 15 destinations worldwide you can volunteer and 6 different volunteering roles to choose from.

Applications are now open for 2021 departures. Closing date for applications is Wednesday 29th April 2020.

US Camp Director hiring in New Zealand!

CCUSA have an exciting opportunity for year 13 students looking for a gap year in 2020.

On September 12th 2019, French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts will be in Christchurch interviewing and hiring for their summer camp staff of 2020.

This is a fantastic camp and a great opportunity for interested students to meet a US camp director in person and find out more about summer camp in the USA, while working on their interview skills.

I have attached a flyer with more information on the camp along with the date and time of the information presentation that will be run by the Camp Director and CCUSA. To book an interview with French Woods, please contact CCUSA directly at-  info@ccusa.co.nz
