Your volunteering abroad experience…

uVolunteer specializes in affordable and personalized volunteer work placements abroad in authentic, non-tourist communities in three great destinations.

We are a small boutique organization that only send volunteer in Costa Ricavolunteer in Ghana and volunteer in Thailand.  Each one of these destinations is unique, has its special charms and different needs in terms of voluntary work assistance. But more importantly, they all maintain a reputation for being welcoming of the independent traveller and safe destinations for first-time travellers and especially for single female travellers.

An important part of us providing you with an unforgettable volunteering abroad experience is to ensure your personal safety. This is our number one priority and we have several service features in place to make sure your trip is stress free.

Our program includes a meaningful work placement, accommodation in our purpose-built volunteer dormitories, meals and personal in-country staff, support and program supervision.

You can be assured that your volunteer abroad placement won’t be plagued by problems or hassles or dangers. Just checkout our review page to see what our volunteers say about us.

Work, travel and explore as you volunteer abroad!

uVolunteer offers a wide range of volunteer abroad opportunities to suit most needs. You can choose to get involved in projects in Teaching, Sports, Community Development, Healthcare, Conservation and Childcare. You can also combine projects in the same location doing them back to back or simultaneously.

You decide on the work you want to do, and we’ll give you all the support and training to get the job done well. Our work projects are provided by our partnerships with local education institution, community groups and NGOs.

Projects are ongoing and continuous with start dates at every two weeks

You do not need any specialized skills or professional qualifications to join most projects, just an inquisitive mind and a desire to help.

After your volunteering is done for the day, you’ll return to our volunteer house (the Dormitory), your home away form home. Here you’ll have the opportunity to meet, interact and make friendships with other like-minded volunteers from all over the world.

And… it’s not going to be all work and no play… we encourage you to explore your destination – not by giving you a strict timetable to follow, but by giving you the confidence to get out there with your new found friends and explore.

Travel that changes your world and theirs…

 uVolunteer is all about Education, Youth Development, Travel & Culture.

We are about getting out of your comfort zone and making a difference in the world. Our take on volunteering aboard is not about travelling to save the poor world, but rather about making a personal decision to do something different, something purposeful during your vacation.

From our experience, the more you put into your placement abroad, the more you will get out of it, whether it’s in the work assignment, the interactions with fellow volunteers, socializing with the locals or traveling your host country.

We think this is by far one of the best ways to discover a country and its culture.

So if you are looking for an international experience that appeals to your independent spirit, then we’d love to have your join our program.

Making a difference starts with tiny steps… and we’re here to help you on your way. Download our information brochure to learn more.
