In this module, we have reflected on motivation and expectations in the preparation phase of cross-cultural volunteering. Understanding your motivation and expectations before embarking in your short or long term project will:

_Increase your efficiency as you work toward your goals

_Drive you to take action

_Encourage you to engage in health-oriented behaviors

_Help you avoid unhealthy or manipulative behaviors, such as risk-taking and addiction

_Help you feel more in control of your life

_Improve your overall well-being and happiness
