Description:

Volunteer tourism is one of the fastest growing trends in the tourism industry. From volunteering at mega events like the Olympics to cultural festivals or museums, the phenomenon of volunteer tourism is increasing on a global scale.Managing Volunteers in Tourism is the first text to use a mixture of research alongside real life case studies to look at the issues involved across a broad spectrum of the tourism industry and to provide guidance on management and best practice.Using a diverse range of international case studies, it highlights best practice, including wildlife conservation programmes in the UK, mega events such as the Melbourne and Athens Olympics, museum and heritage attractions in Japan and gap year break in developing countries and many more.The solid pedagogic structure ensures that this essential guide helps students identify and remember the key theory and applications for this fast-growing and vital industry sector. * The first book to present an overview of voluntary activity across the broad spectrum of the tourism industry. * Packed with international case studies highlighting best practice on how to manage volunteers. * Looks at the future of volunteering including the economic, social and policy issues involved.
