Millennials and Gen-Z aren't the only ones challenging themselves to explore the world and do something different in 2024.
A rapidly growing number of people aged over 50 are opting to give back through their travels. Age is no barrier to volunteering abroad! Use your time to help others, take your career in a different direction, or just try something new!
Before you hop on a plane, you should choose a programme that plays to your strengths and takes you where you want to go.
Start by looking at some of our favourite volunteer abroad programmes for older adults. Then, make the most of your next holiday, career break, or retirement.
What do I need to know about travelling as an older volunteer?
There are several things to consider when volunteering abroad later in life. Your health and safety are extremely important.
We ensure you have the following when you travel with us:
- 24/7 support from our fully-trained local staff
- Airport pickup and drop-off
- All accommodation and meals provided
- Access to medical care if you are ill or injured
All you need to do is relax, dive into your volunteer work, and enjoy your travels! We're here to address all your concerns about volunteering over the age of 50.
A little nervous about venturing out on your own or travelling abroad for the first time? Then we recommend joining our Grown-up Specials for travellers over 50. These special projects run over fixed periods and offer more guidance than our standard programmes. Only participants over 50 can take part, so you’ll be living and working alongside people your own age.
