Volunteering Abroad for Recent Graduates

As a volunteer, you’ll become part of our ongoing efforts to support communities in need. You’ll work directly with other volunteers, our dedicated in-country staff, and local people. All of our projects focus on long-term, sustainable solutions, not quick fixes.  


You can volunteers in areas such as:



We’re focused on doing work that actively makes a difference and creates positive change. Each one solves a specific problem in a specific place. This might be to save sea turtles from being wiped out in Mexico, or to fight gender inequality in Ghana.


Our projects run all year round, no matter how many volunteers we have. That means you can choose your own start and end dates too.
