I'm the founder of Volunteer Global, a website that not only teaches you the how-what-why of volunteering locally and internationally, but that also connects you with hundreds of NGOs working worldwide to better their communities. I just moved to Brooklyn from DC, I love boxing, and of course, travel is just about my favorite thing in the world.
Volunteering abroad is a growing travel trend--one that changes lives worldwide, both for volunteers and the communities they serve. This book brings you 15 stories from travelers who've had the chance to volunteer throughout the Americas, Africa, and Asia.
Your Guide to Volunteer Travel takes you through the steps of choosing a volunteer abroad program, what to expect while traveling, and how to utilize your experience abroad even after returning home. Includes a directory with hundreds of volunteer programs worldwide.
