‘Voluntourism’ Opportunities Now Available

Offered through Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau

Leisure visitors and meetings groups often look for ways to give back to the local community while they’re visiting. It’s known as “voluntourism.” The Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau has partnered with eight local organizations to promote volunteer activities that range from an hour to a full day. From working with seniors or youth in need to caring for homeless animals or helping maintain trails in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, there are plenty of options to choose from in Scottsdale. The partnering organizations include St. Mary’s Food Bank, Welcome to America Project, HandsOn Greater Phoenix, City of Scottsdale, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, Tranquility Trail Animal Sanctuary, UMOM New Day Centers, and Crisis Nursery.
