In today’s interconnected world, educators are increasingly emphasizing service learning, having students learn about other cultures and develop an active interest in humanitarian and/or environmental causes. Teenage volunteer programs are an excellent way for youths to travel abroad, experience other cultures and provide community service where it is needed most. International volunteering helps indifferent students gain awareness of global challenges like hunger and poverty and inspires them to make a difference. Service-learning trips may also allow students to satisfy high school community service requirements over summer break. Other benefits of volunteering overseas include cultural immersion (and potentially language immersion), skill-building and personal development.
