Do something different and and seize the opportunity to travel with purpose. With Projects Abroad, you can use your time, energy and skills to make a difference as an older volunteer.
You’ll work with us towards long-term, sustainable goals, no matter which project you join. You won’t be part of a quick fix. All of our projects are monitored to ensure we’re having the best possible impact on the people we work with. We do this through our management plans and our Global Impact Database.
It’s the perfect setting to share your skills and life-experiences. Whatever project you do, you’ll have the opportunity to give back, and discover what you’re truly capable of.
By taking part in our volunteer travel opportunities for seniors, you’ll also be able to explore in your free time. Wander local markets, taste the cuisine, or chat with global volunteers at a cafe. You’ll also be fully immersed in the local community, living with a host family or in pre-arranged accommodation.
With us, volunteering overseas for seniors is simple because we provide a hassle-free experience. We also have passionate in-country staff available 24/7, ready to help you each step of the way.
