Volunteering: To Pay or Not To Pay

That is the question, asked by fellow globetrotter Steph Dyson who is currently working in South America. I like her blog because it is informative and interesting. Not all about "what I saw and did today"...
Her latest blog is about whether or not paid volunteerism is a good idea.
Steph did not only share her own thoughts on this, but asked several experienced volunteer/travelers. I enjoyed reading their collective comments:

The long and the short of it is: it CAN be OK to pay, but it can also be perfect NOT to pay... It depends on the organization. You need to do your research and then decide what works for you personally.

Hope you enjoy reading Steph's blog.
Happy travels!
