High School Specials: Volunteering Abroad for Under 18s
Make this your year to volunteer abroad, meet amazing teenagers from around the world, and help people in developing countries. We run a wide range of short-term programmes designed specifically for volunteering abroad under the age of 18.
Our summer volunteer abroad programmes for teenagers are a great way to make the most of your time away from school. You can use it to get work experience and learn new skills, which will add a lot of value to your CV or UCAS form. Anyone between the ages of 15 and 18 can join. This kind of volunteering abroad is especially popular for 16 and 17 year olds.
Each High School Special is a combination of hands-on work, observation, taught sessions, social and cultural activities, and weekend sightseeing trips. Our staff are there every step of the way to guide and support you. You can explore our High School Specials below:
