Volunteer Abroad

International volunteering is an incredible way of experiencing the world, while making a difference to another community and providing you with great experience to help you to broaden your horizons.

Through coming together and working as part of an international team on a local community project or with a non-profit organisation, you can learn about different cultures, attitudes and ways of living, and have a positive impact.

“The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.” – DeAnn Hollis.
