Volunteering in Europe

Immerse in unique local cultures while volunteering in Europe

Introduction

Help provide support to local communities in need by doing volunteer work in Europe. At the moment, we offer volunteer options in Romania.


In Romania, you can volunteer with children to support their educational development, or help run activities to develop their creative or sports skills. You can also choose to also expand your own personal skills in medicine, journalism, or archaeology.


Our staff are available 24/7 for support. Projects Abroad organizes all aspects of your project, so you don’t have to worry about the details. This means you can focus your time and energy on what really matters: making a positive impact in the lives of others.

Where we are based in Europe

We currently only work in Romania, a country in the eastern part of Europe.

You can help children learn important early childhood skills on a Childcare Project, or teach English at a local school. For those interested in digging into history, our Archaeology Project is a unique opportunity not to be missed!   


Join us as a volunteer in Europe and support communities in need. Be part of ongoing, sustainable development efforts where it matters.
