Short-term Voluntary Work-Experience Placements for 15-18 year-olds

Volunteering Abroad for 16 Year Olds

Join us for the adventure of a lifetime! Are you in the 15 to 18 age group? Interested in travelling to exciting places, meeting new people and making a difference? Our High School Specials are the ideal opportunity to do all of this and more. Get involved in one of our structured two, three or four week volunteer placements overseas and make this a summer to remember.

Not aged 15-18? See our full range of projects for anyone aged 15-75 here

These summer projects are also a great way to gain valuable work experience, which will contribute massively to your CV or university application. Your time away with us will include a mixture of taught sessions, hands-on activities and observational work.

Live and work alongside small group of fellow-students in an exotic destination. You’ll also have the chance to get involved in cultural and social activities, as well as amazing weekend excursions.
