The Volunteers Program
What is the Explora Volunteers Program?
The Volunteers Program is a specifically-designed outlet of talents featuring adventurers and travelers from all over the Philippines. As we aim to make travel around the Philippines easier, we visit the different parts of the country to document and collect firsthand information. We want to know what we're talking about, so we explore these places ourselves! This ensures that we have accurate updates to share on our website. This is also where you come in.
By joining the program, you become a part of the Explora coverage team. This means that you get to explore the Philippines with us, share your skills, and meet like-minded people! You also get to show your love for your country, or maybe view it from a completely different perspective that's unknown to you before.
Who is qualified to join?
The program is open to writers, videographers, and photographers from all over the Philippines, who are willing to volunteer their time, energy, and skills during our coverage in the different provinces of the country. The duration of a coverage may vary: it may be as short as three days, to as long as one week. Because Explora seeks to explore and experience, we want to travel with able-bodied adventurers who are ready for anything. Don't worry, we won't make you eat worms (unless you want to), but you might have to hike through virgin forests or wake up at 4am to catch a spectacular sunrise.
What are the requirements?
We only have one requirement: a collection of your best original work. Your portfolio will be your ticket to Explora. Because we want our users to see quality content, your selection will likewise depend on the quality of your works.
What kind of content are you looking for?
We accept all kinds of contributions. It could be a write-up about a hole-in-the-wall bar you and your friends have discovered, a video of your travel abroad, or a collection of photographs taken during your weekend on the beach. Of course, your submissions can feature other topics, but we give priority to travel-themed content.
