Volunteering abroad can change your life. It gives you the opportunity to learn new skills, immerse yourself in unfamiliar cultures and develop as a person. On top of this, it is a fantastic way to travel and see the world, experiencing destinations in a way that is impossible on the heavier trodden backpacker route, all the while giving something back to local communities.
With Oyster, you can do voluntary work overseas in a project that suits you, for the amount of time you prefer. We offer a wide variety of volunteering projects abroad and different timescales so volunteers can find the perfect project for them. Whether you choose to become a volunteer teacher in Nepal for 4 months, or you prefer to help with turtle conservation in Costa Rica for just a week, you will come away with memories you will cherish forever and an experience of a lifetime.
You may have a specific destination in mind, you might have a particular volunteering project that you’ve always wanted to be involved in, or you might just be an adventurous soul who wants to see the world from a different perspective. Whatever your motivation, Oyster can help you find the perfect volunteer project and guide you along the route to the experience of a lifetime.
