Volunteer in Mongolia

Travel to the land of nomads and Genghis Khan and support local community development

Volunteer in Mongolia with Projects Abroad and make a difference while exploring a different country. Through our projects, you’ll become part of ongoing efforts to support local communities.


Our Mongolia volunteer programmes have something to suit everyone. If you enjoy working with children, help support early childhood development at a childcare centre. Or, teach English at disadvantaged, rural schools. You can also learn directly from doctors at a hospital, or get practical journalism work experience at a television broadcaster.


No matter what project you choose, our friendly Projects Abroad staff will be available for you 24/7, and they can assist you with any issues or concerns.


Most of our projects are based in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital. It’s the political and commercial hub of Mongolia, and still very traditional. So don’t be surprised if you see monks and locals in traditional dress wandering past business professionals in suits on the streets!

Where we are based in Mongolia

Ulaanbaatar

You’ll do volunteer work in Mongolia in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city and the only major urban settlement in the country. Ulaanbaatar is a fascinating city, with many contrasts. High-rise buildings sit alongside traditional tents called ‘gers’ all over the city.  


You will live with a local host family in or around Ulaanbaatar. Mongolian people are known to be friendly and warm, so you are sure to be comfortable and well looked after during your stay.


In your free time, you’ll have the opportunity to explore beautiful monasteries and interesting museums. You can also take a day trip out of the city to visit a nomad settlement, and we definitely recommend trying Mongolian BBQ.

AIRPORT PICKUP, FLIGHTS AND VISAS

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Mongolia Arrival Procedures page.
