What is VolunTourism?

In the broadest sense, VolunTourism represents voluntary service experiences that include travel to a destination in order to realize one's service intentions. In a more refined and balanced approach, VolunTourism is... the integrated combination of voluntary service to a destination with the traditional elements of travel and tourism - arts, culture, geography, history, and recreation - while in the destination.
