This group was initiated to encourage more folks to explore responsible travel opportunities, connect with like-minded members, and ultimately get out on the road to their next adventure! Absolutely anyone is welcome to join, especially if they have a desire to make a difference in our world by traveling with a purpose. Volunteer-travel can happen in Guatemala, Kenya, Fiji, Mexico or countless other countries and involve eco-efficient stove-building, orphanage work, wildlife conservation or SCUBA diving. The best place to start and learn all about the different programs is by joining the Boston International Volunteers Meetup group!
As a group we will host workshops on proper conservation and international development practices, host local speakers and special events, celebrate achievements abroad, and simply educate each other on how we can make the world a safer, cleaner, happier place to share. We have no religious affiliations and operate as a non-government group, and we're happy to host anyone interested in exploring the world under an adventurous lens. We have decided the best way to describe our group is through a mission statement:
Boston International Volunteers is dedicated to creating an inclusive space for all people who are interested in volunteer opportunities, abroad and at home, by providing a supportive network which aims to improve socially and environmentally responsible travel.
