Tailor-Made Group Trips

Custom Volunteer Group Programmes

Who can organise a group trip with Projects Abroad?

Here are the five types of volunteer groups we work with :

  • Schools/Colleges:  Tailored to your curriculum to help students build skills as they make a positive impact.
  • Universities:  Students gain practical work experience and help improve people’s lives before starting a career.
  • Scouts/Guides:  Give something back to local communities and build essential life skills.
  • Companies:  As a reward or team-building exercise, corporate trips help teams bond while improving your CSR.
  • Families:  A more meaningful holiday and a chance to visit some of the world’s most spectacular destinations.

Travel overseas for the ultimate team-building experience with corporate volunteering opportunities. Or, show your student group what it means to be an impactful volunteer with our variety of programmes! From working in schools to saving sea turtles, there's a project for everyone.

What do others say?

“Taricaya the reserve was great as was the entire project, all the students experienced all elements of the itinerary as promised! They are a phenomenal team with such a clear aim and cause being promoted for indigenous wildlife and in situ conservation. The project was well organised and had a good flow as all of our students were constantly occupied either conducting surveys, caring for the animals in the rehabilitation reserve or being lectured on conservation methods. The staff are incredible and accommodating. We were thrilled with it all and cannot wait to return to the Peruvian rainforest! Such a great, great experience!”

Evangelos Achilleos, Capel Manor College Group Leader

“This trip was like none I’d ever done before. We travelled all the way to Asia, met up with Latymer Upper School from England, learnt some Nepali and got to work in a placement of our choice. These placements linked to the UN's three Sustainable Development Goals of No Poverty, Good Health and Wellbeing and Quality Education. Nepal is full of loving people, people that have struggled all their life and people who are working to help their country improve and achieve these goals. The next time this trip will be run is 2020. This was an amazing experience and I hope everyone will consider going on this trip in the future.”

Irene & Lauren, Students of Holy Trinity School, Ontario, Canada
