Although we are currently unable to connect you to our partner organisations across Europe to volunteer, why not use this unexpected time to learn and further develop your skills?
The best way to prepare for your volunteering experience is to take the time to get some training in before you leave. Indigo Volunteers has partnered with The Human Hive to provide both online and in-person training which has been specifically designed for people supporting refugees in grass roots projects.
The Human Hive founders Darren Abrahams and Kate McAllister started their own volunteer journeys in the Calais Jungle refugee camp converting a double decker bus into a mobile school and developing a unique education system marrying their complementary skills as a teacher (Kate) and trauma therapist (Darren) to address the incredibly diverse needs of the people they met there.
Darren and Kate have poured all their experience into and created an online course “How To Make A Difference” to prepare you to be the most effective volunteer possible, while also taking care of your own wellbeing.
The Human Hive have offered a discount to all Indigo Volunteers subscribers and a further discount to their 3 day in-person training (TBC) on completion of the course.
Price with discount code £32.50 + £6.50 (tax) = £39
This training will give you tools to manage the trauma you may encounter in the people you work with, teach you how to use your skills effectively to include others in your activities and give you a supervised real world experience before you leave home.
