  1. Honduras Trip

    Great travel guide. Thank you very much for including the ethics of volunteering. Making sure that organizations are working with the local community in every level of a project/service is vital. Many orgs do cause more harm than help those communities. Also the suggestion of volunteering in one’s local community before volunteering internationally is awesome. Glad you are doing well. I was in the trip with you in Honduras.

      Hey there! Thanks so much for the kind words and I hope you’re doing well 🙂 Volunteering and giving back to communities has always been very important to me and I definitely agree with your notes!

    This was a very interesting article! I want to get into volunteering more on my free time, not only to benefit others, but my kids as well. I just read an article about the benefits of volunteering, and it just makes sense to do it. What do you think? Any suggestions on how to get started or where to get started?

      Hey Fiona! I would say if you’re interested and looking to help — go for it! There are tons of ways to get involved in your local community, maybe look into animal shelters, homeless shelters, community groups or park clean ups and network from there 🙂
