    Hello,

    Im really interested in the sort of programmes that help small communities in remote parts of the world or children on summer camps such as camp america. The only downside to all of those is that they are all 18+ and I'm only 16.

    Does anyone know of any programmes that are suitable for 16y/o?

    Im not sure if to go abroad on something like this you have to be 18+. So if that is the case are there any other alternatives that are UK based?

    Thanks

    Hey, I'm not sure of the age requirement, but have a look at World Challenge. (Google will help). See if something like that interests you? Also, look at the Duke of Edinburgh program. Google some charities that you are passionate about and see if they operate in any of these remote parts of the world and if there is anything you can do to help out!

    My little sister went to Kenya with this group:

    She was 17 and it says that you can be 16+ with parent permission. Does your college or school have any links with projects?
