Meetings and Conventions > Voluntourism

Leave a lasting legacy


What is Voluntourism?
 A growing trend in meetings and conventions is the desire travelers have to “give back” to their host city. Voluntourism enables your organization to get involved with volunteer activities that benefit Seattle’s local community and environment.

Give back to your host community.
Visit Seattle has partnered with Seattle Works to provide an innovative, turnkey way for visiting groups to volunteer locally. It has never been easier to arrange a volunteer activity that will leave a lasting legacy of service.

“Meeting planners don’t have the ability to go into a city and organize voluntourism components on their own. Seattle is smart to offer resources and to plant seeds with planners.”
