Do you want to take part in the voluntourism movement but only have one week of vacation time? Then Elevate Destinations has the perfect opportunity for you.

Elevate Destinations, a travel company striving to make a difference in each country they visit, has an eight-day volunteer trip planned to Jacmel, Haiti between July 22 and July 30, 2012, to assist rural Haitians move toward economic, environmental and social self sufficiency.

During the short journey, volunteers will work on a construction project to expand a local tree nursery and support reforestation efforts in the community. They will also work with children at an environmental-focused youth camp.

Each traveler will also raise an additional $500 from family and friends before leaving. The money will be donated to Let Haiti Live, a non-profit working to strengthen the independence and self-determination of the Haitian people in all areas of life, and will continue to have an impact on the community long after the trip has ended.
