Volunteer and Intern Abroad with Projects Abroad
Projects Abroad is the world’s largest international volunteering and internship provider. We’ve been running for over 25 years and have sent over 115,000 people on incredible projects throughout the world.
People choose us for our gold standard of safety and staff support. We take care of everything so you can focus on making the most of your time abroad.
We believe everyone has something to offer and we want to help you find out what you’re capable of. With our help you’ll learn new skills, meet new people, make a real difference, and have the experience of a lifetime. You’ll grow as a person and become a truly global citizen.
What makes us different?
The Gold Standard of Staff Support
Safety is everything to us and has been for over 25 years. We would never dream of contracting-out your safety to agents and third parties, as some do. Instead, we employ, thoroughly vet, and train all our own staff. Together, we provide a world-class support network to help you thrive.Read about our unique approach to safety
We take care of everything, so you don’t have to. Shopping around for insurance, organising airport pickups, and finding safe, clean accommodation all takes time and extra money. We take care of it all for you, and it’s included in the price as standard.Find out how easy it is to travel with us
Make a Real Impact
This isn’t just a holiday and we don’t want to waste your time. That’s why we invest in planning, measurement tools, and training resources. This means any project you choose is meaningful and creates real change where it’s needed most.Read about how you can make an impact
I was very grateful to have the support of Projects Abroad; with their help, a scenario that could’ve been stressful and challenging became one of the most rewarding and memorable experiences of my seven months abroad, and I would definitely like to come back to do another project in the future.
Volunteer Teaching English in Vietnam
I would highly recommend Projects Abroad to anyone as they’re well organised and take the stress off of you especially when you have to travel far from home. It’s comforting knowing they’re always only a phone call away if anything goes amiss.
Don’t believe words can truly describe the unforgettable experience I had. From the people, cultures and trips, the memories I gained will forever remain with me. Not once did I feel unwelcome and Projects Abroad worked very hard to make sure everyone felt safe and happy.
