Volunteer tourism is a growing industry. A type of niche tourism, it attracts people who want to gain valuable experience, ‘do something good’ or enhance their CV. But what exactly does volunteer tourism entail? The volunteer tourism industry has been substantially researched and critiqued in recent years by tourism industry stakeholders and researchers (including myself). Whilst it can be a great way to help a cause, it can also negative impacts too. In this video I will tell you what is meant by the term ‘volunteer tourism’, the types of volunteer tourism projects available and the motivations of volunteer tourists. I will also discuss the commodification of the volunteer tourism industry along with the positive and negative impacts. Lastly, I will outline the things that tourists should consider before committing to a volunteer tourism project.
