One of the aims of the Making Connections project is to link interested Servas travelers with host families who can offer a variety of opportunities for an extended stay or more in-depth visit to their country.
Volunteering, work experience, language learning, sharing skills and knowledge and connecting with local peace organisations are examples of potential activities that could be arranged in this way.
Although some countries have offered specific opportunities, others invite travelers to make contact if they are interested in planning an extended stay in their country or want to pursue a particular interest.
Future editions will look at ways of linking Servas families including proposals for an international tree planning project. Also linking Servas members with a shared interest.
