Short-term Voluntary Work-Experience Placements for 16-19 year-olds

Volunteering Abroad for 16 Year Olds

If you're in the 16 to 19 age group and have time to volunteer over the summer holidays or in December and January, why not join us on one of our short programmes designed for you? Aimed to give you valuable work experience or develop a particular skill in two to four weeks, these placements are structured to allow you to make the most of a short time overseas.

Not aged 16 to 19?See our full range of projects for anyone aged 16 to 75 here.

You will live and work with a small group of fellow-students. This can include your friends if you want to travel together. With a mixture of taught sessions, hands-on and observational work, as well as evening activities and weekend excursions, this is a perfect way to have some fun while contributing massively to your CV or UCAS form.

We recommend that you apply early for summer 2015, following record numbers in 2014!
