Here’s what our volunteers had to say:
Our previous volunteers have brought a wide range of life experiences to the expedition team. For some it has been the first big thing they’ve done since leaving school, for others it has been a career break and a chance to reflect on what they want to do next. Our aim is to bring together a mix of backgrounds, skills and interests to create a unique expedition team every time.
The greatest experience of my life
This expedition taught me the extraordinary importance of play
A real life-changing experience.
On the trip I have worked with blind, deaf, autistic and Romany children, the type of people I have never ever worked with. An incredible experience
The expedition has given me enormous strength. Each time I saw participants smile and enjoy themselves I grew stronger. The past 3 months has increased my confidence in a quite amazing way.
I was terrified of putting my life on hold for 2 months but it was 100% worth it. I worked with people I would never normally come across. This is an opportunity to bring joy into the lives of others. Who wouldn’t want to do that?
WAP introduced me to a line of work I had not previously
considered and I’m now re assessing my future.
It is a whirlwind of a trip and will provide a wide and varied environment in which you will be tested in ways you would not expect. You will come out of it feeling more confident and that you have had a genuinely positive impact on those who need it the most.
The expedition challenged me in ways I never expected whilst providing the kind of support you can only expect from family. Saying yes to World at Play is a decision for which I am eternally grateful.
