What Is Voluntourism?

How to Get Started
There are almost no limits to where you can go. Parts of Central and South America, Africa, and South East Asia are always full of opportunities for aspiring voluntourists. Costs will vary depending on the length of your trip, but can be quite reasonable with delicate planning. Furthermore, if you’d like to get a taste of the experience first before going abroad, the American Red Cross is always looking for volunteers to help many in need of support around North America.
Voluntourism is a truly worthwhile experience and innovative way to travel. No wonder it’s becoming so popular all over the world!
