Short Term Volunteer Abroad
Projects Abroad understands that your time is valuable, so if you decide to take advantage of one of our short term volunteer programs we want you to get the most out of it. Our placements can be as short as two weeks, and even in that relatively short period volunteers can make a real difference. Every volunteer has unique experiences and special skills to offer, so we customize our placements to suit each individual. You get to choose where you go, for how long, when you want to leave and when you want to return. You tell us your time restrictions and we fit these in with the needs and requirements in our destination countries. Whether you're looking for a gap year or career break, a summer program or postgraduate time out, one of our programs will fit the bill.
Short Term Volunteering Programs Abroad
By going on a Projects Abroad placement, you are joining a community of fellow volunteers and local people in developing countries - working hard, traveling and having a good time while achieving worthwhile goals. Whether you're teaching in a school in Latin America or helping in a hospital in India, your talents will be used to their greatest ability, working on projects where you are really needed. And you don't need an armful of qualifications to participate, just enthusiasm and a willingness to learn.
