What will you do this summer?

Posted: 4th of August 2015 by Anonymous

Join a volunteer placement overseas with Projects Abroad and you could spend this summer diving with sharks in Fiji, working with children in Nepal or mapping Inca sites in Peru!

Projects Abroad offer a wide variety of flexible volunteer projects and internships overseas which are a great way to improve your CV and gain practical work experience in an area that interests you.

You can choose from over 25 destinations and more than 20 types of projects including Conservation, Care, Teaching, Sports, Business, Journalism, Medicine & Healthcare, Law & Human Rights, Animal Care and more.

With placements in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the South Pacific, volunteers can enjoy adventurous foreign travel and make a positive contribution within a developing country.

The projects run year round, but many students choose to volunteer in the summer holidays after finishing school or college. You choose your start dates and how long you want to volunteer, from 2 weeks up to several months. With over 600 staff worldwide, volunteers benefit from the support and back up that Projects Abroad provide both at home and overseas. 


But don’t just take our word for it:

“I had never travelled abroad before, but this summer I decided I wanted to do a volunteer trip abroad.

My best friend had volunteered through Projects Abroad the summer before and said that her experience was amazing. I went to the Projects Abroad website and began communicating with a staff member. She talked through the disadvantages and advantages to all the different places I was interested in. She was very detailed and honest about what to expect. After talking with her many times I decided on volunteering on a Care placement in Fiji.

Overall the trip was amazing for me. Even though I was there to volunteer and help others, I also found it an incredible personal experience. I had a lot of time to grow and learn as an individual. The people I met and the friendships I made will last a lifetime and I would do it again in a heartbeat!”

If you’re aged 16 – 19 and are looking for a short term summer group trip, check out our Short-term Special options which include structured Care & Community, Conservation, and Medicine projects around the world.
