One of the first things that needs to be covered is visas. Many of the countries we operate in require volunteers to obtain a visa,

often before they arrive. The exact visa requirements will vary greatly depending on the program and the countries you plan to visit. Because there are so many different regulations for visas, there is are no single, one size fits all volunteer around the world programs.

Because we work with a range of charitable organizations all over the world, we can offer you the choice of a number of exciting programs.

Whether you want to volunteer in Asia, Africa, Latin America or elsewhere, we have you covered. All of our volunteer opportunities around the world are conducted in partnership with legitimate local organizations such as clinics, wildlife reserves and orphanages.

You can rest assured that your efforts in volunteering will be truly appreciated and help to create lasting change in these places.

Once you have browsed our range of volunteer programs around the world and decided on which ones best suit your needs and objectives, we will help create a custom itinerary for you.
