Volunteer Abroad: You Are Needed!
On a Short-term program (1-12 weeks), you can help communities in need, enrich your life, and forge lasting bonds.
What are Short-term Quests?
You can choose from countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and Middle East. You can choose from a wide range of projects, such as: orphanage care, teaching English, environmental work, healthcare and more. You will be 100% immersed in the local culture though cultural activities, excursions, and host family stays. You will also be supporting essential community development work.
