How to volunteer abroad as a student?

For many student volunteers like you, this might be your first trip abroad, and you probably have a lot of questions about where to go, which program to choose, and what mentorship will be like. At Volunteering Solutions, we carefully review each application, focusing on your detailed information and needs to make sure we find the right placement for you. Our main goal is to provide great learning opportunities while you contribute to the project.

You don’t need any expertise or previous experience to volunteer abroad. All you need is a lot of empathy, open-mindedness, flexibility, and enthusiasm to contribute towards something meaningful.

We can even tailor our projects for groups of students, along with their teacher or mentor, so they can travel and volunteer together. This customized project will help them enhance their skills and gain valuable work experience. It's an amazing learning journey where you can dive into the local culture, try authentic food, work with locals, and make a real impact on society.

Note: This is for all school teachers/ Principals, looking for the best opportunities for their students. Feel free to write to us at and we shall get back to you, with customized volunteering programs for students.

What do our past volunteers say?

“Booked a medical volunteering trip to Kenya in March with 7 other students and had the best time of my life. The trip was by far the most amazing thing I have ever done. The organisation from Volunteering Solutions was incredible, they were always quick to respond to any queries and our contact in Kenya was amazing!” - Keri H, Volunteering in Kenya
