Outreach International offers overseas volunteer placements for under 18s, often students finishing Year 12 who want to do something more meaningful with their summer break.
Our under 18 volunteer placements are offered in a limited number of projects in Mexico and Ecuador (including the Galapagos) where we feel the nature of the project, the associated accommodation, proximity of our in-country coordinator and levels of supervision are suitable for young adults going for shorter periods.
There is still a high level of independence and maturity required, as these are not ‘group trips’, but ones that stay true to our ethos of developing the individual through a cultural experience.
Volunteering abroad opportunities for those under 18 range from sports coaching to turtle conservation and riding for the disabled. Click here for a list of projects suitable for volunteers under 18 years old.
