Volunteer Abroad Opportunities

  • Volunteer Abroad works in an Orphanage in Ghana, West Africa
    Care volunteers work in orphanages, care centers, kindergartens, and special needs clinics around the world. You will help children get ready in the morning, play games, assist with homework and mealtimes, etc. These are very well-rounded volunteer placements that allow you to bring your own interests and passions in to share with the children.
  • Volunteer Overseas on a teaching service project
    Teaching volunteers work alongside local teachers in any of the destinations where we work. You do not need to have previous experience, just energy, enthusiasm, and patience. You can teach English to students or adults, and if you have the necessary skills you could also volunteer to teach French, IT, music, or sports.
  • Conservation Volunteer Abroad in India
    Conservation and Environment projects focus on preserving some of the most beautiful and vulnerable ecosystems around the world. Whether you are volunteering in a rainforest, on the coast, or in a nature reserve, you will be working alongside our dedicated local staff to protect the area and raise awareness about the importance of conservation.
  • Volunteer on a Sports Project Overseas
    Sports volunteer programs are popular with those who have a background in playing or coaching soccer, basketball, volleyball, tennis, water sports and more. Sports bring people together and help build strong communities, as well as contribute to the creation of healthy, happy individuals.
  • Volunteer work on a building project abroad
    Building volunteer placements involve some of the most important work needed in developing communities, including setting up basic infrastructure. Volunteering to building schools, libraries, and homes lays a foundation that supports locals even after your volunteer work abroad has ended.
  • Performing Arts Volunteers Abroad
    Performing Arts placements are great for those who have a background in music, dance or drama and a passion for sharing their skills with another community. Volunteers impart their knowledge about their art form while learning the local traditions in their destination country.
