Volunteer Abroad

Become part of ongoing efforts to support those in need and discover what you're capable of

Volunteer abroad on one of our safe, sustainable, and worthwhile projects and help make a difference in local communities. As a volunteer, you’ll work towards long-term goals to address needs identified by local community members. This is a chance to give your time and energy where it’s needed most and become part of an extraordinary global network.


We offer a diverse range of volunteer abroad opportunities, so you can do something you’re really passionate about. This includes activities like improving early childhood development for young children, monitoring endangered wildlife, or working on medical outreaches.  


The work you do will help support a community in need. In the process, you’ll also learn and grow as a person. Our volunteer abroad opportunities are also a chance for you to add practical skills and experience to your CV.

With so many volunteers joining us for voluntary work overseas each year, you’re sure to make lifelong friends as you explore and experience a different way of life together.


You’ll get to know a completely different facet of travelling, something you wouldn’t be able to experience as a tourist. Step out of your comfort zone and discover what you’re truly capable of by volunteering overseas.

Is volunteering overseas right for me?

Our volunteer community is made up of people from all backgrounds and walks of life. No matter your age, experience level, or home country, there is a place for you to make a difference on one of our volunteer projects.


You'll also find that some of our trips are more suited for you than others. Our Flexi Trips are open to anyone aged 16 and older. We also have organised Team Trips on fixed dates, where you can team up with others to make a difference. For example, if you’re between the ages of 15 and 18, you can join our High School Specials for teenagers. You can explore our different trip formats here.


For most of our volunteer abroad opportunities, you don’t need any specific qualifications to join. Our dedicated staff are available 24/7 to support and guide you through your work. We have trained local staff in every country where we work.
