The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
A group of guests and volunteers getting ready to embark on a pub crawl.
HI Houston is looking for a few volunteers to help lead hostel guests on a pub crawl within walking distance of the hostel. The volunteers will be responsible for meeting guests at hostel, doing an icebreaker so guests can get to know one another, sharing American tipping culture as well as ID requirements, walking over with guests and interacting with guests.
If you love to meet new people from around the world, this opportunity is for you! This is also a great way for our guests to get to know local Houston and spend time getting to know fellow travelers.
The benefits of volunteering with HI USA include:
Meet new people from all over the world, including travelers, staff, and fellow volunteers
Work to increase understanding and tolerance by helping people break down cultural barriers
Help travelers to the community have a great travel experience
Build skills in public speaking, foreign languages and intercultural communication
Participate in fun appreciation events for local volunteers
