Do you want to learn about another culture, hone your language skills, build relationships, become part of a community, increase awareness, make an impact? Voluntourism, whether for a few days on a family vacation trip or for a few months, whether alone or with family members lets you have this extraordinary chance.
On Friday, April 19th, our own Shari Sapp gave an excellent presentation of her adventure teaching young children and living with a family in a Peruvian village. Her daughter went with her, but worked on an ecology project in a different village and with a different family. That should enhance any student’s college application!
Shari has done extensive homework and published her findings on voluntourism resources: books, websites, even a long list of voluntourism organizations and their special focus that she will make available to RSFWF members. See life as another culture lives it, you will be forever changed!
