Winter Break Abroad with Projects Abroad

If you are a high school or college student, you can volunteer, intern, or study abroad with Projects Abroad over winter break. With no set dates and loads of projects available for as few as two weeks, Projects Abroad is the ideal organization for arranging volunteer opportunities over winter break. We also have pre-arranged Winter Break group trips to help you gain some worthwhile experience and celebrate the holidays abroad during your winter break.

Our projects are open to everyone 16 and older. In most cases no experience is required, just an open mind and a desire to help out where your help is needed. You can sign up individually or with a group of friends.

With Projects Abroad, you can boost your resume by volunteering in a childcare centre in Ghana, protecting endangered turtles in Mexico, or teaching English in Fiji. Those who want to gain medical experience can intern in a hospital in Nepal, Tanzania, or Argentina. Want to ace your next Spanish test? Spend your New Years living with a Spanish-speaking family in Costa Rica and taking intensive Spanish lessons.
