Goals
Credit
Volunteer
An organized period of engagement and contribution to society. Work is with local people, often the under-privilidged rather than professionals. Good to go with the mindset of "learner" rather than "helper".
CONs
Excellent career prep for those interested working in developing countries or with NGOs
Rich immersion with local communities
PROs
May be frustrated with being able to do little about conditions you might like to see changed
Culture shock
Health & safety risk may be high
Whats the difference?
Internships
Often unpaid
Competitive selection process
Demanding with little time to explore local culture
May lack structure

Short term work experience with an organization abroad that allows participants to apply theoretical classroom knowledge in a real world setting and gain a better understanding of a given field in a global context.
