www.learningservice.info is a great website full of resources! A helpful guide book can be downloaded there (if you register), which we found to be extremely helpful for anyone considering to volunteer overseas. In addition a self check tool for voluntourism companies or institutions that receive volunteers can be downloaded without registering. On top of that you find plenty of helpful self made videos on their website and youtube channel, which help to understand voluntourism and to prepare for a volunteer trip overseas. The organization announced the release of a book about voluntourism. You can be notified about the release here. Learning Services keeps the public updated with articles about intercultural learning and voluntourism via their twitter and Facebook page. www.learningservice.info is the place to get started.
