Get involved right from the start!

Our grassroots community organizations develop a close communication with our volunteers overseas to format their work plans and get them really involved with their projects even before they arrive. With the right preparation, you volunteer experience will be rewarding and enjoyable.   Volunteers work in projects developed and operated by a local partner organization and their respective community councils. Volunteer opportunities range from teaching English, Childcare and Orphanage projects to exciting animal conservation volunteer programs in South Africa. There is a new free English teaching program in Colombia!   Our highly affordable volunteer abroad programs are very well planned and clear about the benefits to all parts involved.   Local people that put their souls into their projects run our volunteer programs. Each project coordinator and team workers sends us reports measuring their quantitative and qualitative results.
