Volunteer round the world for a year competition from GVI

Here’s an interesting competition launched by GVI:

GVI has launched an international search to send one person around the world for one year, with flights, volunteering on a range of long-term, sustainable GVI programs and expeditions in one of the most incredible positions in volunteer travel!

Too good to be true, right? Wrong! All you need to do to get this position is complete 5 separate tasks as you aim to beat out everyone else vying for this awesome position with GVI.

You will be communicating with the worldwide GVI community every step of the way through blog updates, and photo and video diaries, so if you are fun, outgoing, inspiring and above all, have a passion for volunteer travel then this position could be for you!

By the time your year-long experience has finished, you will see first-hand how you and hundreds of other GVI volunteers make a difference all over the world.

Great idea to gain some publicity, and I like the X-factor influenced public vote!

About natashastein

I'm interested in travel, learning about other countries and cultures, responsible tourism, environmental issues and wildlife. I like being outdoors and beautiful scenery can really move me and reinvigorate me. I enjoy walking and am planning to get a rescue dog to keep me company on my strolls. I also love to write stuff. I've set up my own website (www.responsiblevolunteering.co.uk), written blogs on topics I'm interested in and written various articles about volunteering overseas. I've always enjoyed writing in my previous jobs. I'm a bit of a creative all rounder - I can draw and make things. It's something I'd like to do more of! I love art and photography and go to exhibitions when I can. I am currently teaching English as a second language in Worcestershire, where I live. I have an eclectic career story. My professional background is in travel and tourism and the charity sector. I have worked for a major holiday company, specialist tour operator and coordinated a University alumni travel programme. Most recently I've worked for a Destination Management Organisation and local government tourism department focusing on promoting the Cotswolds primarily via social media. I also worked for VSO, the international development volunteering charity for 6 years as a Volunteer and Placement Adviser and have done bits and bobs of volunteering with different charities.
