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.

We want to unlock the volunteer in everyone. We give adults around the world the chance to volunteer abroad and do something beyond the norm. We guide volunteers to choose the right project for them, and help make it all happen.
We're not interested in dreary teaching posts where you assist in a classroom of 50 students, or groups that build community centres that nobody wants, or sending you to help a research project that doesn't even exist yet. We're interested in innovative programmes that solve humanitarian issues and desperatly need international volunteers. Learn to develop skills that you never thought you had, like teaching adolescent girls how to express themselves through art, develop an income-generating scheme for poor rural women, build irrigation systems for jungle villages, create a radio programme for hospital patients, and much more! Role of Full Circle is to: 1) Inform volunteers about quality voluntary work overseas 2) Guide each volunteer to choose the right project for them 3) Ensure every volunteer has a great experience 4) Spread the word about the power of volunteering We go further to understand projects' needs and volunteer potential through a structured evaluation and consultation process (in order to facilitate successful volunteer placements). We learn about volunteers' needs, skills and experience and find voluntary assignments that bring out the best in them, whether they want to go for a new experience, career break, skills development or personal journey. Every project is researched in the field by our organization and current volunteers so that we can become truly involved in helping volunteers throughout the whole process.
