Volunteering Abroad for Under 18s

At WorkingAbroad, we place many volunteers abroad each year to our projects around the world and are happy to arrange volunteering abroad placements for teenage volunteers, who are under the age of 18. On this page, you can find out more about volunteering abroad on your own whilst under the age of 18. You can also find a list of our current projects, which are suitable for under 18s volunteering abroad. If you have any questions about arranging a booking please contact us. Please note that we still require all volunteers to be aged at least 16 to join any of our projects.

Please note that for many of our projects, which you can join alone under the age of 18, we still require written permission from a parent or guardian for you to join the project. You can find the requirements on the individual project pages. Please don't hesitate to get in touch, if you are in doubt about the age requirement on a particular project. If you will be travelling together with an adult, then there are also several more volunteer projects that you could join than the ones listed here, please see our family volunteering abroad page for further details.
