Welcome to uVolunteer
We are a boutique provider of safe and culturally insightful voluntary work placements overseas in Costa Rica, Ghana and Thailand.
uVolunteer is a social enterprise with separately operated non-profits in Costa Rica, Ghana and Thailand. This allows us to operate locally in each of our three destinations.
That’s right — uVolunteer operates in just 3 destinations. This means we are able to build strong connections within the local communities where we work and maintain a dedicated in-country staff to provide our volunteers with exceptional 24/7 support.
Because we are locally based, we don’t have to send you to another local organization to manage your placement (like other volunteer abroad companies do.) We have our very own staff that take care of every aspect of your volunteer placement, so we are uniquely positioned to anticipate your needs and meet your expectations.
Our mission is to help travelers see the world from a new perspective while learning about other cultures in an authentic way.
We place volunteers in sustainable, community-led projects at local institutions that need assistance in Costa Rica, Ghana and Thailand. Most of our volunteers travel independently but live in group accommodations with other like-minded travelers.
