In this module, we will explore the motivations and expectations that drive volunteers to leave their comfort zone and to start their new experience in another culture. As we saw in the introduction, it is essential to become aware of our motivation before joining a project. Do you think that volunteers are always aware of this?

I would add a reflection question after the second video:

  • What did you think about this video?
  • Did anything surprise you?
