Volunteering Around the Globe: Life-Changing Travel Adventures by Suzanne Stone This book is simple to read because it is so well organized to be the best reference for how to travel as a volunteer, whether in the United States or other countries. There are many personal experiences that various volunteer travelers share, describing what they did to help in many different countries and how it affected their own lives. The author tells how to choose among the many organizations which offer places and ways to see the world as a volunteer, helping as you go. Stone emphasizes that although you will give much needed help, you will receive far more benefits in the personal growth experience and the satisfiaction of knowing you made a difference. The areas of service which she discusses in the bookare volunteers for business development, construction, cultural preservation, disaster relief, environmental work and conservation, healthcare,social services and teaching. She tells how to plan for the trip, what to take, and which organizations to contact. This is a MUST for anyone who has thought about traveling as a volunteer, and you don't have to have any expertise or foreign language knowledge.
