e talked a lot about volunteering on the road in the early days of our travel plans. Soon after we left on our first long term trip, we decided to WWOOF on a Tuscan vineyard, which, as you may imagine, was all we needed to fuel our volunteering spirit. The following year we traveled to Serbia to help usher in its new WWOOF Program, and then last summer we traveled to Guatemala (one of our favorite places on earth) on a volunteer trip with the incredible folks at Cooperative For Education.
Although I would say the romantic notion of picking grapes in Tuscany is decidedly over, I know that we would do it again and I wish I could spend more time and move to another vineyard every couple of weeks to learn a different aspect of the wine making process.Bethany: Notes From A Winery: WWOOFing In Itay

Clicking on the line above will bring you to a collection of sites we’ve found that provide good information and good opportunities for those looking to volunteer or just give back a little on the road. Please keep in mind that with the exception of WWOOFing in Italy & Serbia and our time with Cooperative For Education, I haven’t tried any of these other places yet. If anyone else reading this has volunteered with any of these particular organizations, or knows of a great one, please leave a comment and let me know your experiences. -Thanks!
