Short-term Specials are set two-, three- and four-week volunteering projects designed just for 16-19 year-olds. These projects are ideal for anyone interested in exciting foreign travel, making a difference in local communities, and making new friends!

These structured programmes give volunteers a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience by participating in activities as part of a group.

Short-term Specials are structured differently to other types of volunteering programmes with Projects Abroad, taking into consideration the requirements of younger volunteers. They have a set itinerary for the duration of the project which includes evening and weekend activities. The group will also spend each day with a member of Projects Abroad staff, who they will work alongside at the placement and who will supervise the evening and weekend activities.

We are offering a range of different projects in a number of destinations, including:

  • Care & Community projects
  • Conservation projects
  • Archaeology projects
  • Human Rights projects
  • Law & Business projects
  • Journalism projects
  • Animal Care projects
  • Medicine & Healthcare projects
  • Sports projects
