We’ve previously featured Idealist on Matador Change, calling the website “THE definitive online reference for voluntourism.”

So we were already big fans of the site before receiving the news that Idealist is currently looking for 10 bloggers to write for the soon-to-launch “La Vida Idealist” blog, a resource for English-speaking expats/travelers who are interested in free and low cost non-profit work in Latin America.

Candidates should be working or volunteering with a local community in Latin America, and willing to write openly about their experiences–positive and otherwise–of participating in community-building projects in a region Idealist considers “full of stories of people turning their good intentions into action to make the world a better place.”

Idealist is an internationally respected website with an average of 60,000 unique visitors per day.

If you’re interested in applying, you can read all the details here.
