Volunteer Abroad Alliance works in a wide range of continents and destinations. Our aim is to build a community of organizations and volunteers who can support our work in some of the most beautiful places on earth.
Here you’ll find all of our different destinations so that you can choose one that suits you. There’s an experience for everyone. If it’s too hard to choose, don’t forget that you can always combine more than one destination to create your ultimate trip! Even more, once you are a member of our Alliance you have unlimited access to the projects you fit in.
In return for their services, volunteers are being given a very rewarding experience, as well as a chance to live and work in a foreign country, learn the local language, participate in local customs and traditions, and travel. Many volunteers begin with little or no experience, and return to their home country with many new skills, making them more attractive in their respective job market.
During their free time, most volunteers choose to travel and explore their surroundings. You can do this on a daily basis, after your workday and explore your local surroundings, or you can take time on the weekends to go on longer excursions with other volunteers, locals, or by yourself, to far away places. You can also choose to save your traveling for after your volunteer service.
Volunteering abroad is a great way to spend your time and energy. Not only will you be helping to develop a country in need, but you’ll be receiving a life changing experience in return.
Being immersed in a foreign country means you’ll most likely be exposed to new languages. As a volunteer, you’ll probably be speaking English during work hours, but you also have a unique opportunity to learn the local language by interacting with locals, talking to your host family, or taking classes.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people volunteer abroad and come back to their home countries full of new skills, new friends, and unforgettable memories.
Are you a human being? Do you breathe, eat, drink, and sleep? Then you can be a volunteer. In simple words, volunteering abroad is not rocket science and anyone with a certain amount of dedication, enthusiasm, sincerity, and patience can volunteer abroad. Having said that, there are certain guidelines one must follow and comply with in order to be a part of a particular program. You can find all requirement at the project descriptions of every destination.
