Voluntourism doesn't have to involve overseas travel - In this photo, FEMA volunteers stack sandbags in Iowa. For this reason, most places will require a fee of some kind to cover your accommodation and food while you are volunteering.

Whatever you choose to call them, consider these volunteer gigs to be a fulfilling and positive way to impact & experience the cultures and people you will encounter on your journey. Expect to put in some serious online hours researching the place you want to go and the opportunities available in whatever area your chosen volunteer destination. A team of volunteers from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) arrived in Hoboken today to initiate a community relations effort, as residents and businesses pick up the pieces following Hurricane Sandy. Some refer to the latter of these gigs as Volunteer Vacations, which may be appropriate for those on shorter term travel routes. The second, and more important resource, will be actually communicating with other people who have already or who are currently volunteering in the area you wish to travel.

Members are based at one of five regional campuses and travel to complete service projects throughout those regions.To be considered for FEMA Corps, you must first apply to AmeriCorps NCCC. In a joint venture between AmeriCorps and FEMA, an 11-person team is in the Mile Square City distributing flyers and information to residents on how to register with the Federal agency. Given the prevalence and severity of disasters and other hazards, FEMA is looking for ways to diversify and fortify its existing disaster workforce structure.
