Concordia is an ethical charity committed to support intercultural understanding and international peace through volunteering. We provide affordable programmes that make a real difference to local communities and the people joining in our projects. We believe volunteering is an experience in which no one is left unchanged, developing active citizenship where everyone is included and participate to their own capacity.
Concordia’s mission is to enable cross-cultural understanding and friendship by providing people with quality opportunities for international volunteering, work experience, education and training.
We offer individual as well our bespoke group volunteering programmes and family volunteering. Concordia has been mentioned in the Lonely Planet publications on “A Traveller’s Guide to Making a Difference Around the World” in 2017 reflecting our commitment in providing meaningful and ethical volunteering.
