Type of Travel

Most volunteer travel expeditions fall into three main categories:

Volunteer Project
The most straightforward, in which there is a clear goal and it is the sole object of the trip; volunteers are expected to come equipped with the necessary skills.

Learning Experience
Volunteers are engaged in a serious volunteer project but are not expected to have a particular level of experience or expertise; greater support is given to developing an understanding of either the culture or the need for the project.

Volunteer Vacation
Here the volunteer project is part of the trip but often not its centerpiece.
