However, today the people from the Cook Islands are challenged by economic pressures which drive the country’s youth abroad. Volunteer in the Cook Islands to help turn this trend around! With just 26 miles around, this gorgeous island will allow you to become acquainted with the local people quickly while volunteering in one of the most beautiful places on Earth!
