Switch it up a bit and get some new motivation, take that step towards a unique journey into the history, culture, diversity and ways of life of our world.

Short-term Volunteer Immersion Programs

It is not always possible to take a longer break to volunteer abroad. These short-term programs allow e.g. trainees or high school graduates from the age of 18 to get to know a new culture while supporting local communities abroad. The programs have a minimum duration of 2 weeks and are especially well structured to make the most out of your time.

UNDERSTAND, TRANSFORM & INSPIRE

In different areas and countries in Africa, Asia or South America you, with the help of volunteer programs from StudentsGoAbroad, are given the possibility to selectively implement your skills and ideas in a unique experience.

As a part of a volunteer work program, you can work part-time or full-time and will be staying either with a host family or other accommodation in or near your project according to the standards of the host country. You will learn an entirely new culture and have a completely different lifestyle. This will help you to understand the local conditions and the lives of the inhabitants. Merely by using your skills and strengths while volunteering, you can help pave the way for a brighter future - not immediately, but sustainable - and with your experiences you will inspire the world.

Volunteering in a foreign country is an unforgettable experience that will surely impact your life and stay with you even after you leave the country. Make a difference abroad!

IS VOLUNTEERING FOR ME?


From 18 years

Basically, everyone 18 or over is suitable, if they feel ready and up for the challenge. For most volunteer projects, there are theoretically no special skills required. 

Authentic Experiences

However, everyone must be aware that the programs are authentic. This means that volunteers are confronted with many social taboos they will have to deal with in everyday life. Especially in countries in Southeast Asia and Africa, voluntary service with all its geographical and cultural characteristics can be very demanding. 

Project Choice

It is important, that future volunteers take more time in selecting their project by first defining their own goals and motivations and how much time, power and heart they are willing and able to contribute. Our years of experience with volunteer projects and volunteers worldwide has enabled us to acquire a good know-how on volunteering, so we are very skilled at helping you find the appropriate project.

Not an ego trip!

No matter in what area you volunteer, volunteering is not a holiday, not an ego trip or a tourist attraction. The projects are authentic and honest. 

Sustainable Results

You are making a contribution by keeping the project moving and helping to further the support of others in a sustainable manner. You cannot change the world, though usually you do not immediately notice a direct transformation. See your work in a global context and understand that any kind of volunteer work nourishes the way to a better intercultural understanding and partnership.

Manage Expectations
