The Value and Purpose of Vounteering Vacations

HopeTracker| Worldchanging reflects on the good and bad of vacations that take people like you and me into communities for short stays to “do good”. Call us voluntourists.

Paying for a working vacation is a great idea but also full of pitfalls.When the focus is us, not as tourists, but as humans seeking a novel or life-changing experience, we typically finds lots of disappointment and frustration in our path.

Worldchanging suggests the best scheme for all: Creating Responsible Volunteerism, and The Guardian weighs in with How to make volunteering work for you.
