One of my LJ friends is in Africa right now through Canada World Youth organization. Basically, she spent 3 months in Canada (doing what I am not so sure) and now 3 months in Africa, I believe. It isn't really volunteering though. It's more like integrating with the community, becoming part of the culture, and in the end also helping the people learn.
My question is... what are some similar organizations and programs that I can join that do this? I believe the CWY program is only for Canadians and I am American.
