The Traveling Volunteer is a community-focused social enterprise, with the mission to provide short term volunteering opportunities for the philanthropically minded leisure and/or business traveler.
We believe volunteers who travel become part of the community they volunteer in. Through this type of engagement, they not only take the experience home with them, but they leave a lasting imprint to remain indefinitely part of the host community. As a result, community volunteers, traveling volunteers, and nonprofit/charity representatives all can say #iamthiscommunity due to their collective connection to this place.
But this is not all we do. We encourage connectivity between community representatives and nonprofits in the community travelers and locals are volunteering in. When collaborating with community nonprofits, governmental/non-governmental agencies (and other groups) to curate volunteering experiences for travelers, we purposefully connect community entities with other. We believe a strong community is a connected community who can create a deeper social impact, together.
