Some related experience (link)...

I had an Eagle Scout go overseas to Africa for a term with the Peace Corp. He will tell you to this day that his experience was life changing for him. Also, I have a niece who went overseas with the WorldTeach after graduating from college and had a similar take on her experience. Lastly, one of my roommates at UVA went the Peace Corp route and stayed with them in an executive position after returning to the states.

There are plenty of other entities besides the Peace Corp so your child should investigate several. The opportunities each one offers may be a little different so your child should consider what he or she wants from the experience to see how each one can best fill that desire.

I've included a link that lists several of the volunteer organizations that may be of interest to your child. Best of luck to your child.
