Make a budget & apply for scholarships
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".
Excellent career prep for those interested working in developing countries or with NGOs
Rich immersion with local communities
May be frustrated with being able to do little about conditions you might like to see changed
Health & safety risk may be high
Whats the difference?
Competitive selection process
