Skip the typical resort getaway. With these volunteer vacations, you’ll travel to incredible far-flung places and do awesome things for a good cause.
Coaching Sports in Bolivia
Here's your chance to shoot a couple of hoops on vacation and help impoverished kids in the process. As a Kaya volunteer, you'll head to Santa Cruz de la Sierra—Bolivia's largest city—to aid a local school with their sports curriculum. You'll also have the opportunity to showcase your mad skills in either judo, football, volleyball, or basketball by offering coaching assistance at a nearby sports center. And with easy access to the city's killer cuisine, you've got your downtime covered.
You Need: Minimal experience. And since you'll be working with kids, all volunteers are also subject to a police background check. ($1181 for two weeks; govoluntouring.com)
