New Student Voluntourism Opportunity in Galapagos

by admin on July 30, 2010

Student Journeys is excited to offer a new voluntourism opportunity in Galapagos for student groups and organizations. Voluntourism, or student trips that involve volunteer work, has been increasing in popularity as giving back to communities through volunteer work is an incredible way to elevate a student trip from simply educational to a deep and meaningful travel experience.

The Galapagos Voluntour offers student groups a chance to study the region’s plants and wildlife, interact with its people and study its culture, explore the adventurous opportunities of the area, and to give back to the people and ecosystem of the Galapagos Islands. Student Trip highlights include:
