Volunteering abroad is increasingly popular amongst people looking to do meaningful work during their vacation or career break. You can spend as little as one week volunteering in over 25 different countries around the world with Projects Abroad. By spending your vacation as a volunteer with Projects Abroad, you are joining a community of fellow volunteers and local people in developing countries - working hard, travelling, and having the experience of a lifetime while achieving worthwhile goals.
Why Volunteer during your Vacation?
Explore a new country and culture through volunteer work - Travel without being a tourist. A volunteer vacation with us offers the unique opportunity to contribute to sustainable development in a local community while gaining an in-depth cultural understanding not possible on the typical tourist trek.
Do something meaningful during your time off - Spend your free time helping others. As a volunteer, you will be joining one of our 450+ on-going, sustainable projects. Regardless of the program you choose, your efforts and willingness to donate your free time will make a tangible impact.
Vacation with the support of a community - Projects Abroad sends 10,000 volunteers abroad each year. On a volunteer vacation you will work with other volunteers, live with a local host family, and receive support from our in-country staff. A volunteer vacation with us is the perfect way to travel with the guidance and company of a community.
Utilize your skills or further your education - We offer volunteer vacations for volunteers of any age or experience level. Qualified individuals can put their skills and experience to good use on one of our Projects for Professionals. Those looking to gain international experience in a familiar or new field can take part in one of our internships abroad.
Plan a vacation without the hassle - We can arrange your flights, accommodations, and quality volunteer work. You’ll have the support of our staff and a structured volunteer program with the freedom to explore during your evenings and weekends.
