If what to do with any looming vacation time has you at a loss, why not opt for going on a trip that gives back? It’s easier than ever to simultaneously escape your hometown while doing something good for others, and with nearly endless possibilities, you can be overseas and volunteering before you know it!
No matter what continent you’re jonesing to visit, Cross Cultural Solutions probably has a destination for you. With programs in countries from Ghana to Peru, you’ll be expanding your horizons while doing something supremely beneficial like helping out at an orphanage. If you only have a week’s time, opt for Insight Abroad trips which are shorter-term volunteer opportunities available in eight countries!
