Has anyone done Volunteer Travel? And what were you experiences?

Jump to last reply

I have been wondering about Volunteer Travel for sometime and there and wonder if anyone has done this? Do you have any references or experiences you can share?

I listened to an NPR story (Rick Steves Travel show) about a woman named Joyce Majors who spent a year traveling around the world as a volunteer. She spent $24,000 (included in that amount was $5400 in air travel).

Lonely Planet has a Volunteer guide (which I have ordered), and I purchased Green Volunteer Edited by Fabio Ausenda (We Care Guides - England)
