Volunteer Abroad & Internships

Trusted projects that make a real impact

Discover what you're capable of

Projects Abroad is the world’s largest international volunteering and internship provider. We’ve been running for over 25 years and been trusted by over 120,000 participants who’ve joined our award-winning projects.

As champions of Responsible Volunteer Travel, all our projects work towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This means you’re helping to work towards a better and more sustainable future for all.

While you’re making an impact, your safety is at the heart of everything we do. We take full accountability from the moment you first contact us, until the moment you return home.

We truly believe that travelling abroad should be easy, fun, and rewarding. That’s why we take care of everything, so that you can focus on learning new skills, meeting new people, making a real difference, and having the experience of a lifetime. You’ll grow as a person and become a truly global citizen.

We know that everyone has something to offer and we cannot wait to help you find out what you’re capable of.

What makes us different?

Gold Standard of Support

Safety is everything to us and has been for over 25 years. We wouldn't dream of contracting-out your safety to third parties, as some do. Instead, we employ, thoroughly vet, and train all our own staff. Together, we provide a world-class support network to help you thrive.

How we keep you safe

Hassle-free approach

We take care of everything, so you don’t have to. Shopping around for insurance, organising airport pickups, and finding safe, clean accommodation all takes time and extra money. We take care of it all for you, and it’s included in the price as standard.

Our hassle-free approach

 

Make a Real Impact

This isn’t just a holiday and we don’t want to waste your time. That’s why we invest in planning, measurement tools, and training resources. This means any project you choose is meaningful and creates real, positive change where it’s needed the most.

How you make an impact

Can’t find what you’re looking for?

We’d be happy to talk about creating a custom project for you. Most of our staff have been volunteers themselves, so they’re well placed to answer your questions, big or small.
