High School Specials

High School Volunteer Work Abroad

If you are 16 to 19 years old and enrolled in full-time education you can join us on a High School Special.  Each project follows a schedule of taught sessions, hands-on and observational work, as well as evening activities and weekend excursions.  Lasting two to four weeks, these programs are designed to make the most of your short time abroad while contributing to your community service credit requirements or college applications.

Every year, thousands of High School Special volunteers actively make a difference around the world. During their time abroad, they contribute towards achieving long-term goals and make a long-lasting positive impact on the communities where they work.
