4 Week Structured Voluntary Work-Experience Placements for 16-19 year-olds
If you're in the 16 to 19 age group and have 4 weeks free to volunteer over the summer holidays, why not join us on a 4 Week programme designed for you? Aimed to give you valuable work experience and contribute to a local community over a 4 week period, these placements are structured to allow you to make the most of your time overseas.
You will be with a small group of fellow-students and the projects include evening activities and weekend excursions. The Care & Community programmes include a mixture of fun and practical work with children and some painting or renovation work at the placements.
The Medicine programmes offer a comprehensive overview of medicine in a developing country allowing you to observe medical treatments and learn about the Indian, Ghanaian or Argentinian medical systems. In Argentina you’ll also have the chance to learn some Spanish. These projects are a perfect way to have fun, explore a new country and contribute massively to your CV or UCAS form!
In summer 2014 and 2015 we have the choice of five 4 Week Specials programmes:
