Taking the road less travelled and lending a helping hand along the way. That’s what you’ll discover on Worldpackers, the app that connects travellers like you, with hosts all over the world.
Whether you’re backpacking on a budget, taking some much-needed time off work or looking to fund your summer holidays, the app has loads of opportunities organised according to the type of experience you want.
There’s ‘Social Impact’, where you can volunteer your time with NGOs, social projects and schools; ‘Work Exchange’ lets you trade your skills; and ‘Eco Program’ gives you the chance to learn something new in eco villages and on farms. In return, you’ll get a place to sleep, meals and the experience of a lifetime.
How about transforming the lives of others as you teach in Nairobi? When you volunteer here, you’ll get three-day weekends, meals, laundry and a cosy bed. It’s an incredible way to help people while exploring a new country.
Or, why not teach kids your native language during a stay in India? Perhaps a trip to beautiful Hawaii sounds appealing, where you can find a hostel that’s in need of someone to join their roster of staff?
You can pick the continents you’d like to visit, the reasons for your travel (taking a sabbatical or on a solo trip for example), the languages you can speak or the ones you want to learn and your interests (nature-lover or social butterfly); the results will then be tailored to you. With countless options, you’re bound to find something suitable.
When you return from your amazing adventure, write about your experiences and share with the Worldpackers community. You can also create or watch exclusive content made by other “packers” and find insightful tips from professional travellers around the globe.
It’s time to pack your rucksack, a world of opportunity awaits.
