Professional Volunteering Opportunities in Care
With Projects Abroad PRO you can get involved in social work projects that focus on providing support for disadvantaged children and adults. These projects are designed for recent graduates, retired seniors or social workers on a career break.
We work with a wide range of local partners, including orphanages, community groups, clinics and care homes. Examples of our projects include volunteering as a social worker in Ghana and volunteering as an art therapist in Romania.
The aim of these projects is to provide support for the victims of social problems, covering a range of issues including domestic violence, family education, adolescent mothers and orphans. In the developing world these issues are not always properly addressed and so the help of experienced volunteers is very much needed.
Projects Abroad PRO will allocate each volunteer to a project based upon individual skills and expectations. This allows you to get the most out of the experience and enables you to really make a difference.
Please find below a list of all the available Projects Abroad PRO Care projects.
If you are not a trained professional in this area you can still take part in a volunteer project with us. Click here to view our regular Care volunteer projects.
