Volunteer Programs By Destination

Volunteering abroad can change the way you view other cultures, change your perspective on global issues, and maybe even change what’s important in your life!  All this while you change the lives of others.  You’ll connect with other international volunteers and work alongside local community members to strengthen their communities.

You’ll experience new cultures and traditions firsthand, not as an outsider, but as a friend.

“My experience was a self-learning one, challenging me to acclimate to another culture and the ways of the culture….I feel proud of myself to have gotten to India in one piece and back. This trip has taught me independence and that I am able to gain so much by traveling on my own and making international connections.”
– Terra C. – India 2014




“My VFP project was a truly unforgettable experience.  I met many amazing and interesting people from all over the world!  The participants were from Spain, France, Italy, China, Ukraine, Russia, Estonia, and Turkey. We worked together to build a playground from the ground up for the local children in Singen.”
– Matthew S. – Germany 2013




“The focus of the trip was extremely inspirational and felt as if we were truly working towards a goal. I liked that we were working alongside the Haitians and sharing those interactions as we all strived towards a common vision for the future of this community.”
– Michael M. – Haiti 2013




“This is a great camp for both working with animals and getting a taste of the real Mexico.  Having been to Mexico as a tourist several times, I greatly preferred my experience as a volunteer, where I was able to do the same work as a marine biologist does with turtles and where my exploration of the city of San Miguel was not limited to the consumer-oriented tourist district.”
– Anastasia K. – Mexico 2015
