WHAT ARE INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEER PROJECTS?

International Volunteer Projects bring together individuals from around the world to participate in two to four week projects. Volunteers work as part of an international team to support community-based initiatives that would not be possible without their help.

 

WHY DO AN INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEER PROJECT ABROAD?

To experience different cultures, ideas and beliefs and also share your own...to work alongside local people in local communities, thus gaining a real insight into their country, cultures and traditions...to learn new skills and broaden your horizons...to meet new people and explore new places...to be part of a global movement working towards equality and peace between all people...to make a difference even when you only have a short amount of time to spare.

 

WHEN TO VOLUNTEER ABROAD?

The main short term programme for the summer, with projects in over 60 countries world wide, is available on our website every year at the end on March. Opportunities are available in winter and spring as well. If you want more information don't hesitate to contact the office.

WHAT OUR VOLUNTEER SAY

 "I went to Nea Makri on the Greek coastline to clean beaches, watch for forest fires and meet new people. I did all this and more. I discovered Greece and Greek people in a non-tourist way. I met people from across the globe and found that despite language difficulties it is possible to put people from different cultures together and they will make friends and enjoy themselves. The experience taught me that age and nationality are of little importance and that you do not have to spend money to have fun or see something beautiful. I made friends for life. Voluntary is about the people". (Hannah, Nea Makri, Greece)

"I will definitely do it again next summer , it was an unforgettable two weeks" (Aliya, Athens).
