Local Law Awareness

Although abiding by local and regional laws and regulations may seem a trivial process by well-intentioned travelers, the ease with which these rules can be broken may come as a surprise. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with regulations, particularly when providing any kind of volunteer service.

In many cases, it is not enough to rely on the practices of a volunteer organization that you may be working through, as even these entities have been known to breach codes. Before embarking, it may be wise to seek counsel with lawmakers and authorities at your destination to ensure safety and legality.
