Tailored Group International Volunteer Opportunities with Projects Abroad

Our overseas tailor made trips are suitable for groups from all areas of society: college students on a summer break, students from a class or university department, sports teams, work colleagues, or even a group of friends looking for an experience where they can work together to give back to disadvantaged communities.

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.

Tailor Made Groups for Business, Education and Volunteer Organizations

Middle school groups

We offer structured group trips for middle school students who are interested in learning more about important global issues and how they can make a difference in the lives of others. These trips are a fantastic opportunity for young students to experience active learning and cultural exchange in a safe environment.

These group trips are customized by our in-country staff and group leader and the schedules take the academic and social learning needs of middle school students into consideration. You can learn more about this option here.

High school groups

Conservation volunteers during an exploration of Terciopelo Cave in Barra Honda National Park

In the past we have sent high school students away on a variety of projects during 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.

College 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 Sports Medicine students to gain experience of sports development. We have placements for Drama students and Language students, not to mention a host of Medicine & Health Care placements for training medics, physiotherapists, occupational 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, giving the children educational and emotional support and developing facilities. We have also sent colleagues on General Building Projects, where they have helped to build homes for underprivileged people in rural communities.

Sports, Music, 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.

"St. Mildred's-Lightbourn School has developed a close partnership with Projects Abroad since 2005 in support of its extensive experiential learning program.

To date SMLS girls have worked in Mexico, Ghana, Morocco, Argentina, Thailand and Mongolia. They have experienced an extensive range of voluntary placements in the the fields of care and community, teaching, turtle conservation, medicine and marine conservation. The opportunity to learn about a world very different from their own in a safe and supportive environment is the hallmark of a Projects Abroad experience. This company offers a complete experience with impressive attention to detail from start to finish. The professionalism of the Projects Abroad staff, both in the field and at head offices, is commendable, reliable and totally reassuring to both school administrators and parents as we coordinate these wonderful experiences for our students.

We take every opportunity to recommend Projects Abroad to like-minded educators and look forward to further developing our relationship and programming with Projects Abroad in the coming years."

Director of Global Studies at St. Mildred’s-Lightbourn School (1999 - 2015)
