Help children and local communities as a volunteer abroad. Community volunteering is a rewarding and worthwhile way to spend your gap trip. Community volunteering can involve helping out as a teaching volunteer, caring for kids in childcare or orphanage projects abroad, or rebuilding communities from the ground up on a building or community project.
Helping out in a community is about improving the day-to-day quality of life for local people. It's about coming to understand and respect their culture. There are few more satisfying ways of spending your time than becoming a community volunteer abroad. You just need to decide what is the best way you can make your mark while you travel and see the world

One way in which you can make a real difference to local communities is to help educate, inspire and care for its children. Get involved as a volunteer teacher or help out at amazing childcare projects. Our most popular trip is our Cape Town Community Volunteers programme. Sign up to help communities in stunning South Africa!
Another way to make your mark as a community volunteer is to (quite literally!) lend a hand and help out with local building projects. Whether the community needs new schools, water facilities or other community buildings, if you put your weight behind a building project abroad you'll see the difference it makes for yourself!
Do you care about the health and wellbeing of communities abroad? Get involved with vital medical work while you are away. If you have previous medical experience as a doctor, nurse, dentist, physiotherapist or other healthcare professional then your skills are in high demand. Help out in local communities around the world!
Many communities around the world depend on the natural resources that surround them. Despite this, local communities are not always aware how important it is to protect their natural environment. Volunteer at rewarding conservation projects and help save the natural world.
There are plenty of community projects waiting for your help abroad! The only question to ask yourself is: Which community will you help first?
