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.

WHAT OUR VOLUNTEER SAY

"From this experience I have gained an increased knowledge of looking after the environment and the importance of recycling. I have also learned a lot  of many cultures from around the world. I had the best time of my life. Thank you!"(Patrick, environmental project in Italy)

"Very good. The experience for me was wonderful. Although the walks up and down the mountain were hard; and the work was worthwhile. Acquerino reserve is stunning. The volunteers all got a really well together, the food was great and we had a lot of fun in the evenings and on our trip. It’s an experience that will always stay with me and I’ll definitely do it again."(Sarah, environmental project in Italy)
