‘Meet a volunteer’ events

The best way to learn more about volunteering overseas to fight poverty is to hear first-hand from people who have done it themselves.

Volunteers in conversation, Rwanda

VSO runs regular events across the UK where you can meet returned volunteers and hear their experiences brought to life.

“I liked it all and if I had any doubts about volunteering before the event, I certainly don't now. I can't wait for my application to be processed” - MVSO participant, 5 September 2015
