Tailor-Made Group Trips

Custom Volunteer Group Programs for Five or More

Calling all school and university students, teachers, scout leaders, corporations, and parents! Whatever group you belong to, we can tailor a group trip just for you.

Do you need academic credit, service hours, or just want to build a stronger team? Group volunteer trips are a fantastic way to do this.

Our Background

Since 1992, we’ve sent young people overseas to build their skills and leave a positive impact on local communities. This is made possible by our global network of volunteers, local staff, project partners, and host families.

For more than a decade, we’ve used this experience to run bespoke group trips. Every group is different and, therefore, every trip is tailored. We want your group to get the most out of these trips while leaving the greatest impact.

Some of our most popular group trips include:

Group Case Studies

Over the years, we’ve sent many groups abroad. We work tirelessly to give them the best possible experience but don’t just take our word for it. These case studies are written by group leaders as an honest reflection of their experiences overseas.

You can also contact us if you’d like to speak to a group leader directly. We can connect you to someone who’s been on the exact project you’re interested in. They’ll be able to provide personalized advice and information.

What do others say?

“Taricaya the reserve was great as was the entire project, all the students experienced all elements of the itinerary as promised! They are a phenomenal team with such a clear aim and cause being promoted for indigenous wildlife and in situ conservation. The project was well organised and had a good flow as all of our students were constantly occupied either conducting surveys, caring for the animals in the rehabilitation reserve or being lectured on conservation methods. The staff are incredible and accommodating. We were thrilled with it all and cannot wait to return to the Peruvian rainforest! Such a great, great experience!”

Evangelos Achilleos, Capel Manor College Group Leader

“This trip was like none I’d ever done before. We travelled all the way to Asia, met up with Latymer Upper School from England, learnt some Nepali and got to work in a placement of our choice. These placements linked to the UN's three Sustainable Development Goals of No Poverty, Good Health and Wellbeing and Quality Education. Nepal is full of loving people, people that have struggled all their life and people who are working to help their country improve and achieve these goals. The next time this trip will be run is 2020. This was an amazing experience and I hope everyone will consider going on this trip in the future.”

Irene & Lauren, Students of Holy Trinity School, Ontario, Canada
