Volunteering Worldwide

Voluntary work can be one of the most rewarding ways to spend all or part of your gap-year.

It's the top gap choice among the Year Out Group's members, with a 20% rise across all age groups.

The majority of gappers choosing to volunteer overseas are in the traditional gap-year age bracket of 17-23, but we're told by our partners that increasing numbers of career breakers and retired people are exploring this option.

The most popular types of projects overseas involve either humanitarian or conservation work.

Humanitarian work might include building a school or community facility, teaching or nursing. It may be tough work in extremely conditions and do be prepared for some culture-shock, but the reward and feeling of accomplishment may be life-changing.

If you're interested in animals, wildlife and ecology, a conservation project may be for you. There are a huge number of conservation projects across the world and some fantastic opportunities to get up close to some of the world's most interesting animals, often in stunning locations. 

There are some excellent companies that offer a range of volunteering abroad projects. You'll find them listed below. To refine your search, type what you're looking for into the search box.
