About this title


If you’re looking for a way to make a difference while on vacation—simultaneously getting away and using your talents to improve the world—this guide shows you how a short-term volunteer stint can transform your life as much as the people, animals, and ecology you choose to help. This fully updated edition is filled with in-depth information and profiles of 150 select organizations, more than 40 new in this edition, running thousands of quality programs in the United States and around the world.


Inside, you’ll discover ways to


  • Excavate Jurassic Period dinosaur fossils in Wyoming
  • Work with women in their own microbusinesses in Ghana
  • Study wolves with field scientists in Slovakia
  • Help Haitians rebuild their homes
  • Organize activities for orphaned children in the Dominican Republic
  • Live and work with elephants in Thailand


Each listing includes complete contact information with locations, costs, dates, and project details you won’t find anywhere else. It lets you know the work volunteers typically do and any special skills needed and highlights projects specifically tailored for families, seniors, and people with disabilities. Stories from recent volunteers and a host of new photographs help you further imagine your volunteer adventure.
