How do I decide what kind of international volunteer work 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
- 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 placement that will change the way you think about the world.
