I was just introduced to a website with an excellent comprehensive list of volunteer opportunities in Belize. What a great way to travel to a foreign country — working in a community, and helping local Belizeans! This site lists several organizations offering many community development projects. You could volunteer to help build a school, work at a shelter for disadvantaged kids, assist on wildlife projects, teach in literacy programs, help with manatee rehabilitation, or teach computer skills to locals. This is just a small sample of the opportunities listed. Some of the organizations they list: ProWorld Service Corps, Kayak Responsible Travel, global Vision International, All Access Volunteers, Maya Research Program, and A Broader View Volunteers Corp. If this interests you, GoOverseas sponsors this outstanding Volunteer in Belize directory.
