Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Welcome to A Broader View! We offer volunteer projects for the globally-minded individual searching for a unique travel experience. We are a non-profit volunteer organization offering short term placements working with international social projects in many countries in development. Our programs are based in SouthAmerica, Asia, Africa and Western Europe, and provide vital social support to low income communities in need of assistance.
We created A Broader View on the belief that one person can make a difference in the lives of others.
We believe that our programs make a positive impact on the volunteers who travel with us, as well as the local community. We have found that cultural immersion leads to a personal satisfaction that one does not get as a tourist.
Our programs immerse you in the every day life of your host. You will personally experience the happiness, struggles, aspirations and dreams of the people you assist - all while discovering the beauty, history and culture of a new location.
A Broader View volunteer program is for anyone searching for a meaningful, enriching, life-changing experience while traveling abroad. Our programs open you up to world of discovery. You will experience people, places and things of which you have only dreamed. If you have one month to spare or just one week, A Broader View programs offer a real opportunity to experience, learn and contribute in ways which traditional travel does not do.
Whether you are searching for a different sort of vacation, voluntourism, volunteerism, on a career break, a retiree, or a gap year student, A Broader View Volunteers program is for you.
We provide the unique opportunity to truly experience foreign cultures, learn about new people and have a life-changing experience.
