Hey guys, I have a question. If I don't get a legal internship in London next summer (or maybe even if I do) I am thinking about volunteering abroad. I have done a bit of research and there seems to be quite a few organizations to do this through. So far I think the best sounding are called I-to-I and CIEE. They all seem fairly similar though (ie you can choose between tons of places, and cost is about the same).....does anyone know anything about these organizations or have you done something similar before? I want to go for about 2 months or more but can't do more than 3, and would like to go somewhere in S. America. Plus, I would love to go and be with other volunteers who are not solely from the US, or be the only volunteer in the area for good immersion.....thanks!

Love,
Lauren

I forgot what book or magazine I was reading this in, but it highly recommended Oxfam as a volunteer organization to work for.

Thanks for the suggestion! The organization sounds great but apparently they don't have opportunities abroad; only domestic..
