Awarded Best Volunteering Organisation, we have been arranging ethical and inspiring volunteer placements around the world since 2001. Whether you want to want to help care for elephants, be part of ground-breaking research, learn to dive and contribute to reef conservation or support children and education around the world, then Pod Volunteer has the project for you! Volunteers are needed for 1-12 weeks to help work with animal care and rescue, conservation initiatives, building projects and disadvantaged children and communities in Belize, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Ghana, India, Madagascar, Namibia, Nepal, Peru, South Africa and Thailand.

We are a leading non-profit organisation working with long term projects that we visit personally so we can answer any questions you might have about them. We are focussed exclusively on overseas volunteering, it’s all we do and what we are passionate about and we’re driven by the needs of the projects we support. We only offer sustainable volunteering projects that have lasting and positive impact on the local community.

As a Pod Volunteer you will have a dedicated placement manager who will help you to choose the right project for you, and then support you all the way through the process, including 24/7 back up support. Our friendly team has a wealth of overseas volunteering and travel experience. We have all volunteered overseas and pride ourselves on our project and location knowledge.

"Pod Volunteer is extremely organized and takes phenomenal care of their volunteers. There was always an open line of communication, very thorough information packet and support throughout the entire process." – Kayleigh, 2017
