I was recently asked to write a guest post on voluntourism for FareCompare.com and doing so I find is often a challenge. I write this blog for the industry so writing something for the consumer is a completely different mindset.
It brought up the question though, what information needs to be included in these general consumer facing articles both in the media and in blogs. What would you say are the top three things every potential volunteer needs to know? (and do you in fact address those on your sites?)
Here’s the article if anyone wants a laugh: http://deals.farecompare.com/2010/04/12/voluntourism/
