Volunteering Ideas Abroad watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone.

    I’m looking for some advice and ideas about volunteer work abroad (even somewhere different in the country if the right place appeals to me - I’m in East Anglia).

    I’m looking to do something in August, just for 2-3 weeks (as I’ll be working some of the summer break too). I’m open to destinations as well as different volunteering ideas - although conservation/animal work and possibly with children are areas where I’m realistically thinking about.

    This is super scary for me, and I’ll be going alone, but it’s something I just want to push to do! It would be nice to go somewhere where there are other volunteers. I’m not looking for a party-type destination (ha).

    So any ideas, who to book through, etc? Any personal experience?

    Also, money isn’t too much of a problem, as I have money saved away for this occasion.

    Thanks !

    There are literally hundreds of opportunities so I guess it really depends on what you want to do or go. Does anything or anywhere particularly appeal? I would recommend searching options on a comparison website e.g. One World 365's volunteer programs abroad. I hope you manage to find something soon
