Now, with over 600 trained staff in our destinations, and offering over 100 generic placements and a wide choice within these placements, we are now the world’s leading overseas volunteering and gap-year organisation

We help to create local employment wherever we send volunteers. We employ many people directly and provide plenty of work indirectly through the services we provide for volunteers.
