True Travellers Society
The True Travellers Society is the creation of travel blogger, Andrew Wahba, and he notes on the blog that it was initially developed "out of frustration with the “volunteer in Asia, volunteer in Africa, volunteer in South or Central America, but first pay us lots of money” organizations." The aim of True Travellers Society is to connect people to free or low fee volunteer and meaningful travel opportunities around the world. It's also a place to read a variety of diverse travel stories and gain ideas on how to have more of off the beaten path adventures!
Why We Love It
With as many resources as there are available on True Travellers Society, we also love that the site is structured to provide useful information to anyone looking to volunteer abroad. Ranging from tips for potential volunteers and travelers, to advice on fitting in within a new culture, and how to save on expenses, there are resources aplenty to keep travelers coming back for more. And for those who are interested in supplying their own tips and experiences, the blog allows for guest posts, further diversifying the volunteer topics that are discussed and shared with like-minded travelers.
Here at GoAbroad, we love resources like True Travellers Society that promote meaningful travel and international education experiences. This blog lives up to its motto of "truly travelling the world" and we encourage you to check out the blog for more updates and information!
