A local woman in Samoa takes part in a community celebration

If you have ever wanted to experience a different country and culture through the eyes of a local, now is your chance! Volunteer and live in a traditional Samoan village, situated right on the coast of Upolu Island during our Care & Community Village High School Project in Samoa. Get ready to eat, dance, speak and ultimately live like a local.

During your time abroad, you will work at two libraries. One library is in Apia on Upolu Island and the other is in Salelologa on Savaii Island. Volunteers will focus on painting and repair work at the local libraries, as well as running a literacy and reading programme for local children. The literacy programme takes place during the Samoan school holidays.

In your first week, you will live with a host family, and in your second week, you will stay in a traditional rural village on Savaii Island. This will give you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the Samoan lifestyle.
