An Alternative Way to Travel: Projects Abroad

If you’re tired of doing things the tourist way, choosing Projects Abroad as an alternative way to travel may be the perfect way to get off the beaten path and volunteer abroad! Projects Abroad sends over 10,000 volunteers abroad annually. We are one of the leading alternative travel options out there, with hundreds of types of projects in almost 30 countries. You can travel to an exciting new country and interact with local people, discover their culture, and make a lasting positive difference in their lives, getting more of an insider’s point of view than the average tourist.

The Advantages of an Alternative Travel Program

Our alternative travel programs can last anywhere from two weeks to several months. The start and end dates are totally flexible, and you can choose the project and destination that appeals to you. Whether you choose to work with children at an orphanage in Cambodia or do marine conservation in Thailand, you will be making a lasting contribution to your placement and the local community, and improving the lives of numerous people. Anyone over 16 can travel with us and make a difference, even with no prior experience. Projects Abroad offers a unique opportunity to travel differently and help others while doing so. You will meet volunteers from all over the world who share the same desire to travel and make the world a better place.

Projects Abroad: The Ideal Alternate Travel Experience

At Projects Abroad we value cultural exchange and helping not only the local people, but also the local economy. We employ local staff in all our destinations, and our volunteers truly benefit from the knowledge and expertise the staff bring to the table.
