Volunteer Overseas

Since 1997 we have welcomed over 10,000 people to volunteer overseas on our projects.  We know they have had life changing experiences because they tell us so.

We are proud to offer three different types of programs to volunteer overseas.  Each option is unique in its aim and its focus, however these volunteer overseas programs are categorically designed to help you get the most out of your program.

Please have a look below at the different volunteer overseas program types:

 

  • Internships – Looking to launch a meaningful career? Our Internships offer professional development opportunities with tons of formal training and certifications! Study the Amazon as a field scientist, or become a SCUBA Divemaster in Mexico, or train to be a safari guide in South Africa, with over 30 internships around the world we’re sure we’ve got one for you.

 

  • Expeditions – Explore the world on one of our expeditions and experience some of the most remote and dramatic locations in the world. Join forces with an international group of volunteers on a broad range of community and/or conservation issues. Prepare yourself for exploration, travel and complete cultural immersion.

 

  • Volunteer Projects – We offer over 100 volunteer projects in over 25 countries with 8 different volunteering focuses. We are pretty sure that you can find a volunteer project that fits your timing and your interests. Track jaguars through the rainforest in Costa Rica, teach Buddhist monks in Laos, the range of possibilities is endless!
