Some students and recent grads, however, have experienced the crisis firsthand through volunteering stints in Greek refugee camps, where thousands upon thousands brave tough conditions as they hope for safe passage to wealthier European countries.
For independent volunteers, the onus is on them to raise funds for travel costs, figure out housing and research how best to spend their time on the ground.
