At Passion Passport, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive, creative community of intentional travelers. A large part of this involves giving back to the places we visit and leaving a positive imprint on the world. There is no shortage of volunteer opportunities abroad, however, it can oftentimes be daunting knowing which to support. At the end of the day we can all do something, however small, to make the world a better place.
This week we want to hear your stories and questions about ‘Volunteer Travel’. Have you volunteered abroad? Are you interested in exploring these opportunities? Whether you have or haven’t, this week we want to create a space to share views and inspire change through travel. Join us, @pamelamacn, @fostervisuals, @DanteHarker, @heynadine and the Passion Passport community this Wednesday the 4th of April from 2:30 – 3:30 pm EST to chat about ‘Volunteer Travel’.
