Volunteer Abroad

Restoration projects, literacy campaigns and teaching are just a few examples of the many different volunteer programs abroad. Some programs charge a fee and provide services such as insurance coverage, meals and even housing. Some provide free room and board in exchange for your work, and others even pay a small stipend. Volunteer work opportunities may range from a few weeks to two or three years in duration. If you're interested in development work, want to meet other foreigners and host nationals, and don't mind rudimentary living conditions, you may want to consider this type of program.
