Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you write a column on volunteer vacations? My husband and I are both in our ‘60s and are interested in taking a service-oriented “altruistic” vacation this summer but could use some help.
If you’re looking to do more on your vacation than relax in the sun or go sightseeing, volunteer service vacations — also known as voluntourism — are a great alternative and a growing trend among retirees. Here’s what you should know.
