Volunteer Missions or Volunteer Abroad?
“Volunteer mission” is a common phrase used to refer to our “volunteering abroad” programs. The words used to describe our volunteer opportunities are not nearly as important as the people who dedicate their time and energy by volunteering. Volunteers are just normal people who want to help others and make a difference in the world by trying to make it a more beautiful and loving place. Whether you call it volunteer missions or volunteering abroad, you will be taking advantage of a great opportunity to put your time into a meaningful and rewarding program.
We offer a wide range of volunteer missionary opportunities and international mission destinations to suit your interests, and with more than 600 trained staff in our destinations and over 100 types of mission projects, we are a leading international volunteer organization worldwide. It is thanks to our 10,000 volunteers who work in developing countries every year that we are able to continue functioning. Our prime responsibility is to take care of our volunteers and we take this very seriously.
Volunteer Mission – What is it?
Projects Abroad is a secular organization; Projects Abroad is not affiliated with any political or religious organization, nor is it affiliated with any creed or faith. Projects Abroad is 100% funded by the program fees that are paid by the volunteers themselves.
We accept volunteers from all around the world, embracing a very wide range of backgrounds and beliefs. We believe that this diversity makes our programs more productive and enriching for every volunteer involved. In the long run, we sincerely want to bring more cross-cultural understanding into the world.
Volunteer missions and Globalization
Through your volunteer mission, you will not only provide aid and community service to your destination, but you will also help nurture a developing economy. In fact, employing local staff overseas and using their talents and knowledge is vital to our success. Our volunteers are able to help strengthen developing countries by dedicating their time and unique talents. Whether volunteers are working in an orphanage or helping in a hospital or interning at a local business, every minute they spend and every person they meet is one step closer to a better world. Volunteers also benefit greatly from our programs,as they have the opportunity to experience new cultures and countries and become a part of something that can make a difference. In the age of the global economy, we believe this mutual respect is what cultural exchange is all about.
