Tailored Group International Volunteer Opportunities with Projects Abroad

Our overseas tailor made trips are suitable for groups from all areas of society: university students on a summer break, students from a class or university department, sports teams, work colleagues or even a group of friends looking for a truly original volunteering experience!

Projects Abroad can offer groups of five or more volunteers the option to custom-design a placement to suit their goals and interests. These programs can range in length from a couple of weeks to several months, depending on the time you have available and visa requirements in the destination country.

Volunteering Overseas – Group Projects Suitable for Business, Educational and Voluntary Organizations

High school groups

In the past we have sent high school students away on a variety of projects during March break, summer or winter holidays. Our staff will arrange all aspects of the trip, from accommodation to weekend trips and will provide supervisors plus unrivalled support in the destination country.

University Students

We have a whole host of projects that are directly relevant to undergraduate subjects and can provide a group of students with an unparalleled and unforgettable experience. Our Conservation & Environment projects are perfect for Geography, Zoology, Biology or Marine Biology students who are looking to get some practical experience. Those pursuing English or Media Studies will flourish on one of our Journalism placements.

Our Sports projects are a great way for Sports and Exercise Science students to gain experience of sports development. We have placements for Drama students and Language students, not to mention a host of Medicine & Healthcare placements for training medics, physical therapists, nurses, midwives and dentists, as well as many others!

Corporate groups

Why not combine a team-building exercise with a project that will enhance your organization’s Corporate Social Responsibility? We have many projects where we can bring people together, working for the benefit of others in the developing world. In the past we have sent professionals out to Care Projects where they have worked in orphanages, playing with the children and developing facilities. We have also sent colleagues on Community Housing Projects, where they have helped to build homes for indigenous people in rural communities.

Sports groups, music societies or other arts groups

If you would like to participate in an overseas tour where you can really put your skills to good use then we have a whole host of projects where you can coach, teach or otherwise impart knowledge to enthusiastic groups of children and adults in the developing world.
