If you’re a young humanitarian who cares for others and filled with compassion for those in need, you’re required to help disadvantaged people and communities around the world. Can’t wait to start? We’ve got good news for you! You can start helping vulnerable people when you’re still a teenager. Many youths and adolescents are faced with a desire to help but feel limited by their age. Humanitarian work is powered by those who feel deep compassion for others who are in need. Don’t think that you have to be an adult to contribute!

Humanitarian Travel for Youth

Younger generations have always inspired the rest of us to better our world. That kind of idealism and the energy can be infectious. When compassionate youngsters come together, real change can occur. In this context, many lives are touched by these young, compassionate hearts. Adolescents are outspoken, creative and with the right amount of effort they can achieve amazing results in the field of humanitarian work. Are you interested in humanitarian travel for the youth and do you want to help the less fortunate? Find a cause close to your heart. Dig into your interests and find a way to contribute to compassionate initiatives of inspiring organizations. You can start out by volunteering or joining an initiative set up by your high school. 

Teenage volunteering is a fantastic way to make new friends and participate in unique and incredible community service initiatives.  There are wonderful programs offered all around the world. From the South-African townships to disaster struck regions in your country. Next to the rewarding feeling of helping those who need help most, these projects are also amazing resume-builders. They’re ideal for college and job applications! They also contribute to building personal and interpersonal skills like communication and leadership skills that come in handy everywhere. Humanitarian travel for youth is also an excellent way to take the foreign language you are studying in school to the next level, meet incredible people and of course do your part to give back to less-fortunate communities.

Join a high school initiative, or begin one of your own! What’s better for your development than joining or leading a group of students who are passionate about helping people build better, sustainable lives for themselves and others around them? Many high schools around the world offer programs specifically aimed at humanitarian development. They’re either led by NGOs schools or students. Many NGOs and charities provide their own collaborations with high schools such as Habitat for Humanity's Campus Chapters or UNICEF's High School Club.
