‘This outstanding book asks the right questions, and is willing to explore hard answers that can lead to mutual respect and growth. It is a must read for the 21st century volunteer who wants to be more than the classical do-gooder.’

                     – James Orbinski MD, former international president of Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF)

Volunteer Voices is a guide for the critically minded volunteer and early career development worker. It is designed to help aspiring young changemakers engage with the complicated environment of international volunteering from a hands-on perspective that can help them to benefit and contribute as much as possible from the experience. By sharing stories, mistakes, and learning this book guides readers to reflect on their own work and how their own practice might improve, which is crucial to the development of an effective volunteer.
