The WorkingAbroad Difference

Founded in 1997 as one of the first volunteer abroad agencies on the web and one of the pioneers in worldwide volunteering abroad, WorkingAbroad now runs programmes in over 30 countries across the world focusing on wildlife conservation and community development projects. All our projects adhere to our ethical volunteering standards.

Our aim is to be the Go-To Website for Ethical & Responsible Volunteer & Internship Opportunities Abroad enabling volunteers to find a wildlife conservation or community volunteer project abroad, safe in the knowledge that we adhere to the highest ethical standards.

About WorkingAbroad

WorkingAbroad has been helping and assisting volunteers from all over the world for more than 22 years. We are one of the original founding Volunteer Organisations in this sector, created by two ex-volunteers Vicky McNeil & Andreas Kornevall and we have always maintained a grassroots personalised approach since the very start. We pride ourselves in the trust that thousands of volunteers have put in us and we are delighted with all of the ex-volunteers who keep returning again and again as a testament to our work.

We strive to provide people with a guide to taking the first step towards a career that is aimed at the betterment of other people’s lives and conserving the natural environment, which is reflected in our logo:  Take Action for Nature and Society.
