Join us for the adventure of a lifetime!

Are you between the ages of 15 to 18 years? Interested in travelling to exciting places, meeting new people and making a difference? Our High School Specials are the ideal opportunity to do all of this and more. Get involved in one of our structured two, three or four week volunteer placements overseas and make this a time to remember.

These projects are also a great way to gain valuable work experience, which will contribute massively to your CV or UCAS form. Your time away with us will include a mixture of hands-on activities, taught sessions and observational work.

Whilst living and working alongside a group of fellow volunteers in an exotic destination, you’ll also have the chance to get involved in cultural and social activities, as well as amazing weekend excursions. You can choose from over 29 destinations and more than 20 types of projects including Conservation, Care, Sports, Business, Journalism, Medicine & Healthcare, Law & Human Rights, Animal Care and more. We offer placements in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the South Pacific; so volunteers can enjoy adventurous foreign travel and make a positive contribution within a developing country.

With over 700 staff worldwide, volunteers benefit from the support and back up that Projects Abroad provide both at home and overseas.
