Volunteer in the USA

Print this page

Country: United States of America,
Type: Humanitarian & Community Development , Teaching & Education, Working with children,

The United States is home to diverse people, cultures, foods, weather, and geographical terrain. Each part of the country is unique in its way of life, its people, and its specific needs. Whether you live in a big city or a small country town during your service project, you will learn about American culture by experiencing what many Americans themselves experience in their daily life. We want to invite you to see the USA through volunteer programs in education, environmental conservation, social welfare, immigrant support programs, and community building.

We work with a variety of projects in the United States in the fields of Education, Social Services and the Environment. Available host projects reflect changing needs and priorities and may vary from those described below. Our current projects are focused around these three areas and we will do our very best to find both a host family and volunteer placement that is right for you!

During your stay in the United States you will be living with a host family. They will pick you up at the local airport and will take you in as part of their family to add to your complete experience while in the U.S. You will be expected to participate in this family's life with an open mind. This family has gracefully opened up their home to learn more about your culture as well. Be ready for an amazing growing experience.
