The rwi voyager program

Providing practical instruction on how to drive meaningful, impactful volunteer experiences.

 

Every volunteer is on a journey of discovery.

 
 

Our journey begins with helping. When we are struck with the sudden need to do something, to give back in a way that eases suffering or solves a problem, we help. And as we reach out to help others, we become passengers on a ship, en route to a new, unknown land and culture. 

Over time, as we continue to volunteer, our perspective expands and we move from helping – where there is an “us” and a “them” – to a place of belonging. We come to understand what was once an unknown land; our empathy deepens and we begin to care for this culture through experience; and eventually, the lines between us and them disappear. We start as passengers on a ship, and we end as captains, guiding others to the places where we now belong.

Instead of merely showing up for volunteer events, we are swept up in a social movement. We are no longer participants, we are agents of change. And this voyage continues as our passions drive us to bring more and more people to know what we know and to engage in this meaningful discovery.

 

 

 

“If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”

- Antoine de Saint-Exupery

“This was a wonderful course. It was an eye opener. I am an enthusiastic volunteer at my organisation, & I lead one initiative. This course will help me to reorganise the initiative better.”
