Want to help? First you must be willing to learn. This year, over ten million people will go abroad, eager to find the perfect blend of adventure and altruism. Volunteer travel can help you find your place in the world--and find out what you're made of. So why do so many international volunteer programs fail to make an impact? Why do some do more harm than good? Learning Service offers a powerful new approach that invites volunteers to learn from host communities before trying to 'help' them. It's also a thoughtful critique of the sinister side of volunteer travel; a guide for turning good intentions into effective results; and essential advice on how to make the most of your experience. This book is for volunteers and educators alike. If you're wondering if volunteer travel is right for you; if you're getting on the plane tomorrow; or if you're trying to adjust to life as a returned volunteer--this is the book you need in your bag.
