Flexibility & Variety
The options with Projects Abroad really are limitless. Through our local staff and our long association in each country, we now work with over 1,000 different settings, covering teaching, childcare, healthcare, construction, human rights, and conservation among many others. If that is not enough, we can always create new and custom ones using the resources and experience we have, including tailor-made group trips.
This enables us to match volunteer skills and aspirations to a suitable placement and allow volunteers to join us when it is best for them. There are no set start datesand programs run continuously throughout the year, so we can easily fit your schedule. This makes our programs a great alternative to the Peace Corps, allowing volunteers to join us on a flexible time frame in creative projects. Whenever volunteers arrive and at whatever time, our staff are waiting at the airport for them with all the details for their project fully prepared.
This flexibility also allows people to combine programs, to live and work with friends, and to work at the placement which inspires them most.
