Volunteering makes important contributions; contributing to a more cohesive society by building trust and reciprocity among citizens. It can be both challenging and rewarding and require you to use your skills in a new context. You can also transfer useful knowledge while gaining a greater understanding of the issues affecting other people.
At YPPD, we seek to provide our volunteers with valuable learning opportunities to increase their global consciousness, enhance communication and leadership skills, and gain real world experience. Our projects are anywhere from 2 weeks to 12 months long or beyond and allow volunteers to choose the theme of their service whether it is discovering something new or growing within a field where an interest already lies.

My working and stay with the Youth Partnership for Peace and Development in Sierra Leone was one of the very rare opportunities one hardly find sitting home without thinking of being part of offering solutions to some of the world's poorest communities. Apart from the hospitality received, it was truly a heart-warming experience working with the organizations amazing team of committed young change-makers. I went to provide valuable experiences with my earlier skills but later on I realized there was so much to learn from a small entity like YPPD and its high impact driven work with young people and the communities they work. It was hard returning back to London but whenever I have the opportunity of getting back to Sierra Leone, I'll obviously be with the Youth Partnership for Peace and Development to continue optimizing impacts together!
