Which service? Where? Yeah. I have two sons who did this.

One worked for a specific NGO. In Afghanistan. Saving orphans and helping build markets for women who made textiles in remote villages. Micro loan stuff, plus transportation of goods to Kabul. And then he funded, organized, and built a hydroelectric facility for five villages.

The other volunteered for a medical organization, working in Africa with victims of tropical diseases.

Both loved their experiences. Both were in some danger, either from other humans or pathogens. But both came out fine. But most parts of the world aren't that dangerous.

Putting all that aside, I'd highly recommend it for pretty much anyone.
