Conveying the Voluntourism Experience

One of the first things Kristen and I discussed when we began planning our trip was that we needed a blog, and obviously, that blog needed a name. We enlisted suggestions from friends. My friend Dave came up with Voluntourists. It turns out that Voluntourism was already a noun enjoying some regular usage. In fact, an entire website is devoted to it. Voluntourism.org. Today I had the pleasure of participating in a webcast on Voluntourism.org- the subject of which was "Conveying the Voluntourism Experience."

You can listen to it HERE.

I recommend checking out the whole website. There's lots of cool stuff on there.

Hey, my name is Jennifer and I am thinking about volunteering at ACODO in Siem Reap, as I also visited briefly last year. I would love to hear from you what your experience of this was if you have time! Jenwarr@hotmail.com.
