• TRAVEL UPDATE: We're open! Program reopening updates and answers to your questions about COVID-19 and our flexible booking policy.

Volunteering abroad isn't just meant for the millennials, and you'll be surprised to know that there are incredible opportunities for seniors and retirees to serve the society and make a difference. In the recent years, senior volunteering has become extremely popular, and people above the age of 50 are breaking free from a relaxed life, and showing enthusiasm to travel abroad and volunteer to create a positive impact in the host country.

Volunteering Solutions has an array of affordable and exciting programs meant for the seniors, and each of our programs contributes towards the worldwide economy once our senior volunteers travel, preserving the atmosphere in Thailand and Sri Lanka, providing mentorship to underclass kids in India and Myanmar, or exploring & working for the 2-weeks Special Programs in Portugal, Costa Rica and Tanzania. We can also offer you exclusively customized volunteering programs, to suit your convenience.

Over the years, we have hosted several elderly volunteers. And the best part is that we'll provide you with 24*7 in-country support, comprehensive pre-departure guidance, a detailed orientation before the program commences, comfortable accommodation and healthy meals. We'll also offer you with required guidance for exploring the new place and ensure that you get to enjoy your stay there.

In case you are thinking of what to do after retirement, or already bored of your monotonous life - why not set out for a meaningful journey and experience something beautiful as volunteering? Write to us at [email protected] and our experts will get back to assist you in this regards.
