SLV.Global Placement: Bali Placement

Current Role: "I am currently volunteering with the Youth Services Counselling team in my local area. It’s incredibly rewarding work and I am grateful to my time in Bali for the skills I gained, which I am able to apply to my current role."

Tell us about your SLV.Global experience: "SLV.Global allowed me to not only work and live within an amazing community, but also introduced me to so many new life-time friends from across the world. The work they do is incredible, and it’s so wonderful to be able to witness first-hand the benefits their work has on the community and those in need."

Tell us what you gained from your SLV.Global Placement: "Team session planning and adaptation on projects was the most helpful skill I gained from my SLV.Global placement. Things don't always go to plan, knowing how to adapt calmly and effectively is key. It was also super helpful to work in a different culture, as it has now made me more culturally aware and able to work with people from different backgrounds."
