Volunteer or Work Abroad

I found these websites to be quite helpful if any of you are interested in volunteering or working abroad. I love traveling and would love to volunteer/work internationally so I’m going to be doing this soon once I save up a little money. If any of you have had experience in this I would appreciate some advice/guidance/testimonials.

I’m Broke And Have A Degree To Prove It

If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work. Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done. So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business. This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.

History Lesson

The assassination of Franz Ferdinand was actually the most hilariously botched assassination attempt of all time though, like, I can’t even explain to you how badly it went. I mean there were six guys and the first one chickened out and the second one forgot to factor in the delay on a hand grenade so it exploded like three cars past the archduke’s so the guy took a cyanide pill and threw himself into a river, but the cyanide was expired and the river was six inches deep so the police just pulled him out and took him off to jail and then everyone else basically gave up and headed home, and then the driver of the archduke took a wrong turn and the car stalled next to the last of the six guys, and he was just like “what a crazy random happenstance” and started world war one.
