Travelocity Web Series Spotlights Voluntourism In Medellin, Colombia

SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In Travelocity's newest Let's Roam Colombia with Avianca episode, host Courtney Scott volunteers alongside travelers from six different countries at the Angeles de Medellin community center in the hilltop barrio of Regalo del Dios, a short cable car ride away from Medellin.  Founded by a New York expat, Mark Kaseman, Angeles de Medellin provides education and health care for families displaced from Medellin, the second largest city in Colombia.

In 2006, Travelocity created Travel for Good, the first program of its kind by a major travel company, to offer travelers a way to easily connect with voluntourism organizations. Each quarter Travelocity awards $5,000 grants to travelers who submit YouTube videos explaining why you deserve to go.  Grants are applicable for trips through the leading voluntourism organizations in the world, including: Cross Cultural Solutions, Globe Aware, Earthwatch Institute and American Hiking Society.  Travelocity's latest Travel for Good grant winner, Cinde Dolphin, will be traveling to Tanzania to participate in the Cross Cultural Solutions , a nonprofit program working to address critical global issues by providing meaningful volunteer service to communities abroad. 

"Travelocity believes that the gift of travel comes with responsibility to leave the destination better than how you found it," explains Scott.  "To uphold that responsibility, it is important that I give back to the destinations I visit. I've been lucky to participate in four voluntourism projects through the Let's Roam series so far, including New York City, Dallas, St. John, and now Colombia." 

Roam along with Courtney and her fellow traveler, the Travelocity Roaming Gnome, on Travelocity's YouTube Channel and at Travelocity.com/LetsRoamColombia.  Join the conversation using the hashtag #LetsRoamColombia.
