Volunteer Travel Made Easy: How to Choose & Plan Your Next Adventure

Our very own Kathryn Pisco is putting together an awesome class for people who want to volunteer abroad. This is an open event and men and women from outside our meetup group will also be in attendance.

TICKETS ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND. Purchase them here.

Check out the description below:

This class is perfect for people with a passion for travel, adventure, volunteering, or developing personal relationships!

With adventure travel and voluntourism (volunteering while traveling) on the rise, more and more people are seeking unique vacation options where they can do "good". Volunteer travel is a fabulous way to experience cultural immersion and give back to the communities you visit! But, finding and vetting volunteer travel projects is difficult, confusing, and time consuming.

After traveling for nine months with my husband and engaging in five different volunteer projects, I discovered how to research, budget for, and plan exciting and meaningful volunteer travel experiences. This class is designed to de-mystify the voluntourism industry and save you time and money. My goal is to help you learn from my mistakes and make it easier for you to become a global citizen. I use recent research and personal experience to tell you about how to "dabble in volunteer travel." Come join us in a casual, fun, interactive setting and talk travel!

You will leave this class with the following: 

- Better understanding of the complex "voluntourism" industry 

- Tips, tricks, and resources for how-to find and plan fun and impactful volunteer travel experiences 

- The ability to feel confident booking your next adventure! 

- New friends that share your passion for exploring the world

    One of these days I going to remember to "look below the line" on meetups I want to attend. Unfortunately I didn't see until today this required a ticket and it's sold out. :(. I added to my Dabble wish list in hopes Julie will offer again.
