Scott Burke, Founder & Director

Scott’s first trip outside the U.S. was in 2000 at age 31 when he quit his corporate job to be a volunteer English teacher in Nepal.

After returning home, he founded the non-profit “Cosmic Volunteers” in order to help others have their own special experience volunteering abroad.

Scott has made over forty visits to developing countries. He sets up and manages operations in each host country and continues to lead clients on volunteer service trips.

Cosmic Volunteers has sent over 1,500 volunteers to 16+ countries in Asia, Africa, and South America. Cosmic Volunteers, its volunteers and Scott himself have donated much time and money to worthy causes on several continents.

Scott is a Philadelphia native and alumnus of the William Penn Charter School and Franklin & Marshall College. His travel albums are on his Facebook Page.
