Abstract


Known as a combination of volunteering and tourism, voluntourism is a new concept, a great opportunity to visit a foreign country, use time efficiently and play an important role in local communities. This concept is very suitable to young people, but they are not the only ones interested in it. Even if it is not known by all young people this concept is emerging as a form of volunteering.

In the present study, based on the information obtained through a survey, using as research instrument a questionnaire, authors want to emphasize how known is the concept of voluntourism by young people and what is their perception toward volunteering, in general, and voluntourism, in particular. The questionnaire contains 27 questions and was applied among young people aged between 18 and 30 years from Poland and Romania.
