It’s the best of both worlds. You can explore a new country and culture. While being deeply rewarded through volunteer work.
As reported by the VolunTourism Institute, volunteer tourism – or voluntourism - is one of the fastest growing trends in the travel industry. And by 2020, there could be 20 million U.S. voluntourists who plan to use their vacation time to make a difference in the world.
There are thousands of volunteer organizations with thousands of volunteer opportunities worldwide. As a voluntourist, you can do everything from teach English in Columbia and install solar panels in a Nicaraguan village to survey glaciers in Antarctica and save sea turtles in Costa Rica. While the opportunities are endless, organizations like GoEco and Go Volunteering can help you choose a trip that fits your interests.
So if you’re tired of the same old vacation, consider joining the ever growing numbers of Americans who are venturing across the globe in hopes of seeing it, interacting with it, engaging with it, and contributing to it.
Grab that passport. Have a life-changing adventure. You’re covered.
