There’s no shortage of volunteer opportunities around the country, but giving your time in other, less fortunate parts of the world provides a thrill that can’t be beat. Whether it’s working with kids or doing environmental conservation, going abroad to volunteer is one of the best ways to give back. Of course, there are a lot of programs and arrangements out there. Luckily, websites like Global Volunteers, International Volunteers HQ and Projects Abroad are available to narrow down specific excursions that are right for you.
Some of these trips do stand out, though. In the spirit of #GivingTuesday (a day when we promote charitable giving instead of the gluttony we indulge in every Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday), think about if you’d be a good match for any of these six programs.
