Volunteer Holidays Overseas
Volunteering abroad is increasingly popular amongst people looking to do meaningful work during their holiday or career break. You can spend as little as two weeks volunteering in over 30 different countries around the world with Projects Abroad. By spending your holiday 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 a good time while achieving worthwhile goals.
Why volunteer during your holiday?
- Explore a new country and culture through volunteer work - Travel without being a tourist. A volunteer holiday with us offers the unique opportunity to contribute to a local community while gaining an in-depth cultural understanding that is not possible on the classic tourist trek.
- Do something meaningful during your time off - Spend your free time helping others. As a volunteer, you will be joining one of many ongoing, sustainable projects. Regardless of the program you choose, your efforts and willingness to donate your free time will not go unnoticed.
- Holiday with the support of a community - Projects Abroad sends approximately 10,000 volunteers abroad each year. On a volunteer holiday, you will work with other volunteers, live with a local host family, and receive 24 hour support from our in-country staff. A volunteer holiday is a perfect way to travel abroad with the support of an organisation and the company of a community.
- Utilise your skills or further your education - We offer volunteer holidays 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 experience in an unfamiliar field can take part in one of our internships abroad.
- Plan a holiday without the hassle - Let us arrange your flights, accommodation, and quality volunteer work. You’ll have the support of our staff and take part in structured volunteer tasks with the freedom to explore during your evenings and weekends.
Who can take a volunteer holiday?
A volunteer holiday is a great option for families, university students on summer holiday, career breakers, and everyone in between. With projects running year round and available for as little as two weeks, a volunteer holiday is an option for anyone.
