We provide resources to help you truly travel.
True traveling is getting off the tourist track and integrating with the local community. It is about exploring and experiencing culture away from the gift shops and the tourist traps. It is about leaving the all inclusive resorts and going beyond simply meeting the locals. To truly travel you need to immerse yourself with the locals and their culture. The trick is finding opportunities that will enable you to do this.
The aim of this site is to help you truly travel. We share interesting travel stories and adventures of people truly traveling. We also provide a variety of resources to help you truly travel.
Your International Volunteer Travel, Meaningful Travel and Gap-year Resource
One of the ways to truly travel is through volunteering. There are a number of fantastic volunteer opportunities that do not cost anything other than the cost of you being there. These organizations are run locally and can be a bit tricky to find, but they are worth it once you do.
We aim to help connect you with free or low fee international volunteer programs and provide you with resources to make the trip happen. These resource include fundraising sites like Volunteer Forever and educational sites like The Ethical Volunteer.
Please note, if you are interested in any of the organizations on our site, please contact the organization directly. We do not coordinate your volunteer experience. We connect you to the organization. It is then up to you to do the due diligence and make sure the organization and opportunity is for you.
If you have international volunteer opportunities to share or are interested in finding an opportunity, please let us know. Maybe we can help you out.
I hope that you find the site useful.
Safe and happy travels,
Founder True Travellers Society
