Capstone project

Voluntour No More

For her Master's thesis, Erin worked with a team to develop a comprehensive educational source about voluntourism. Never heard of voluntourism? That's ok! Most haven't. Voluntourism is when you combine volunteer work with tourism activities. It has become a $173 billion dollar industry which is harming the developing world.


Serving as the group leader, Erin directed the strategic communication plan, website design and content curation (social and web). Erin combined her experiences with data analysis and content curation to develop the project. She hopes to inform individuals who may be planning to participate in a harmful trip.
