    volunteering abroad questions

    Discussion started by Bloc131 - Aug 20, 2003

    in the somewhat near future i'd like to go to another country (or a few) and do some volunteer work. maybe see how they really live and get to know the people instead of just being a tourist on some crazy schedule.

    does anyone have suggestions for going about this? i've looked at a few lesser-known volunteering programs but i'm not sure how solid their reputation is. i'd like something that wasn't super super expensive if possible. but yeah that's probably out of the question.

    peace corps isn't an option considering i'm not out of college. but yeah any help would be nice. i know a few of you are quite well travelled.

    thank you.

    actually my friend from emory college just got back from doin work in brazil. she said it was actually pretty easy to do. she had to write a mission statement type shit. just ask around at your school, she said there was someone specific to talk to but it just slipped my mind. ill ask her and edit this later if i can. hope that was some help..:idea:
