Millennials seek something in between voluntourism and frivolity

Implications - Millennials have a reputation for being the most charitably minded generation yet, which reflects in their vacation choices through things like voluntourism. However, as they begin to age and start families, the feasibility of volunteering begins to wane. As a result, organizations are offering more traditional vacations with a charitable aspect, allowing the Millennial to age without letting go of their old ideals.
