I want to volunteer abroad in either Europe or SOuth america, how do I go about doing this?

Any 2 week or month long program? i cannot do it for longer than a month. And ideally i would like a program that either PAYS you, or would give me free room and board. Also I would want to have a program that lets me have free time too so i can explore the place I
m at, even if its just on weekends. I know I would have to pay for my flight, but a program that is $600 or less would be ideal. Especially one in Spain or Italy, or Costa Rica. I would love to teach English or volunteer with wildlife, social work, etc. But there is so much info on the web about this I don;t even know where to start!ther are aslo some great programs i found but are very expensive!! anyone know of any links or prgrams that fits these criteria??? thanks!!

Here are a few options you might consider and or get you started on. The area you are looking for is international service learning (there are also a few service learning professional associations that might help - national society for experiential education is one.
