Just for teens
High Schools Specials are for teens (16-19 years old) to join a group of their peers participating in worthwhile service and professional development projects under the constant supervision of Projects Abroad staff. These projects have set dates for 2-week and 4-week periods and follow a busy daily schedule, including guided tourism trips and cultural activities.
For school and University Students
Groups of 5 or more can participate in tailor-made group trips in any destination. Most projects can be customized to fit the goals of a group and the needs of the local communities in which we work.
Just for Professionals
These projects are structured the same as our Volunteer Abroad and Intern Abroad programs, but where volunteers work in roles where there is a specific need for people with professional experience. Start dates and duration of these projects are flexible to fit your schedule.
Whether you are starting from scratch or looking to enhance your existing language skills, our classes will enable you to learn a great deal. You can choose to participate in only a language placement or spend a few weeks learning the local language before joining one of our diverse volunteer programs. This enables you to get the most out of your volunteering experience and is strongly recommended for those joining a medicine or journalism internship with a language requirement.
In most destinations children under 16 years old can accompany their parents on our projects to volunteer abroad together as a family.
