Voluntourism101 is a tool created to help tour operators and volunteer sending agencies check their practices against the most effective practices shared by groups around the world. It is also a tool for travelers to help them identify the best questions to ask before their next philanthropic travel experience.
You can find the self-check guide here, in an interactive format. We encourage you, travel companies and travelers, to share your stories and lessons on this guide to help others learn from your experiences. You can also download a PDF version of the guide in our resources section. Together, if we share ideas that work and the lessons we learn in developing our organizations and our personal travel experiences, we can improve the voluntourism sector, and the world.
