International Volunteering Opportunities
The international volunteering opportunities offered through Projects Abroad allow you to not only provide beneficial aid and services to a community but also gain new insight into your adopted country and culture. You’ll meet new people, learn about a new culture, live in a new environment, and provide meaningful support to those that need it most.
Who can volunteer internationally?
Projects Abroad has international volunteer opportunities for school/college students and university students, recent graduates, career break volunteers, professionals, retirees, and everyone in between. Our volunteer community is incredibly diverse. You will work alongside volunteers from many different countries and backgrounds who all share the same goal: to help make life better for people everywhere.
What international volunteer opportunities are available?
Projects Abroad is one of the world’s leading international volunteer organisations. We have hundreds of different international opportunities in almost 30 countries around the world. Our projects are designed to allow you to make a real difference, whether you choose to volunteer with children in Jamaica, build a community centre in South Africa, or help preserve the rainforest in Peru; your time and efforts will make a significant impact.
How do I decide which international opportunity is best for me?
While we pride ourselves on the level of diversity and variety we offer, we also understand that it can be difficult to choose between so many options. For those that need some additional guidance, you may find the resources below useful to narrowing down your opportunities:
- Call or email us to talk to a Programme Advisor. We’re here to help!
- Read through stories from former Projects Abroad volunteers
- Check out photos and videos from our destinations
- Visit our blogging platform, MyTripBlog, for stories from current volunteers and staff abroad
- Narrow your search to a specific type of opportunity or area of the world
You can even combine placements and destinations if you don’t want to limit yourself to just the one project.
Let us arrange an international volunteer opportunity that will change the way you think about the world.
