You have heard the pleas on television, in your school newspaper, even from the First Lady herself. Throughout our nation and the world, you can volunteer. If you have already participated in volunteer projects in your community or beyond, then you know the rush of helping others and of knowing you gave your time and resources to do it. Now perhaps you are considering this same edifying theme for your next student tour.

We can point you to volunteer opportunities in the states and abroad, from our national parks to the rainforest of Ecuador or a tropical island in Thailand. You can be a part of the conservation of wildlife or the building of homes for underprivileged families around the world.
