Volunteer Travels: How to Choose Your Program

The world of Voluntourism is growing each and every year, and truthfully, we couldn’t be happier.  These days, it seems that global nomads everywhere don’t just want to take in a pretty sight, they want to improve upon it.

VoluntourismTo that end, we receive countless emails asking us which programs are the best or most rewarding.  Since each and every one of us is different, we decided to scour the internet and ask around to fill you in on a great site that matches voluntourists with the programs that might be right for them. Volunteer International is one such organization that offers an in-depth overview of programs from all over the world. The International Volunteer Programs Association (IVPA) is an association of non-governmental organizations involved in international volunteer work and internship exchanges.  Specifically, IVPA is an association of volunteer sending organizations but does not organize or run its own volunteer programs.  Rather, they introduce you to all the best.

When you visit their site, go to ‘Current Members’ and scroll down to ‘Search Member’s Programs.’ Here, you can choose by region, countries, skills, and duration.  We think it’s the Google of the Voluntourism World. So go forth, young one… inspire those around and within.
