Step off the beaten track and take part in a volunteer vacation abroad. With Projects Abroad, you’ll be able to pack your bags, stamp your passport, and become part of our long-term efforts to make a real difference.
There’s a lot to see and do during volunteer travel. You can support children’s education, learn a new language, or dive with sharks on a wildlife volunteer vacation. You’ll live with a host family or in shared accommodation, taste delicious local food, and experience cultural exchange with the people you meet. Whatever you do, we’re certain that your vacation will be transformed by the worthwhile volunteering work you’ll do.
We offer you a hassle-free experience, so that you can focus on making the most of your volunteer holiday abroad. On a Flexi Trip, you can choose your own dates anytime throughout the year. You can also join a Team Trip if you’re looking to travel with a set group over fixed dates.

Volunteer Vacations for Seniors
As an older volunteer, you too have the opportunity to travel and make a difference. Share your skills and life experiences with local staff and our partner organizations. You’ll meet people from around the world and explore your surroundings while being fully immersed in a new country.
As an older volunteer abroad, you can join one of our Flexi Trips. On our Flexi Trips, you’ll work independently but still have the support of our staff. Our projects run all year round, no matter how many volunteers we have.
If you prefer a shorter time abroad, and want to work with a group of likeminded volunteers in their 50s and older, join a Grown-up Special.
No matter the project you choose, you’ll be part of our long-term, sustainable efforts. It’s the perfect opportunity to travel and make a difference in the lives of others.
Family Volunteer Vacations Abroad
Travel with purpose with those closest to you - your family. On a family volunteer vacation abroad, you’ll experience the power of giving back as a family unit.
You’ll volunteer on projects where we work toward long-term sustainable goals. If you’re traveling with your children, this is a wonderful way to teach them about helping others and realizing their potential. You can also use the time to bond and relax in a new setting. Your family will have 24/7 support from our dedicated in-country staff.
Work and play will be balanced, giving you the chance to help a person in need, while also giving your time to grow stronger as a family and create new memories. You can learn more about family volunteering abroad here.
