    I thought of teaching English online over the summer but we took such a long vacay (road trip) that I just didn’t really have time. Summer’s almost over and I”ll be teaching soon so it won’t happen. I know someone who went to Dubai to teach English.

    These are such great opportunities for someone who’s still trying to find the self. I love that you shared a variety of opportunities to fit all kinds of personalities. Can’t go wrong with giving back to those in need.

    This is something I always wonder about when I see people traveling to different parts of the world. I think it is important for tourist to immerse themselves in the culture and volunteering brings that to another level. Local folks deserve the love.

  • Mimi Green

    This is a good variety of options. Growing up we volunteered all the time, it is a great way to stay humble. I would love to work with the kids, that is my element.

    So many places to see and people to help along the way! I have to investigate where my kids have a heart to travel and who they want to help.

    I love this and would add volunteering at females serving institutions that cater to victims of domestic violence, victims of sex-trafficking, etc. There is a lot of work to be done in the females empowerment/opportunity space as well.
