Make your summer holiday count!
Why not use the mini gap between the end of school and start of university or college to hit the ground running with some valuable experience. Oyster offers a huge range of summer volunteer programs and summer jobs abroad. Take part in a worthy cause such as an animal or wildlife conservation project with our fantastic volunteer organisations on several continents around the world. Enhance your C.V. by volunteering as a teacher, get involved in community development or obtain unique medical volunteering experience abroad. You can also work in Sydney or Auckland and gain a few dollars for the year ahead.
Increasing, numbers of school students are looking for overseas opportunities during their summer break, summer abroad volunteer programs are more popular than ever, as are summer jobs abroad for students. Volunteering abroad is a fantastic way to spend a meaningful summer, and animal welfare, conservation and teaching volunteer abroad projects are certainly becoming ever more popular. We cater for 17 year olds upwards.
Volunteer holidays are a great way to experience a gap year, yet with the flexibility of it being a short-term summer volunteer program. Summer volunteer projects can be done for as little as one week, but for up to 15 weeks. Get involved in one of our volunteering over summer programs and make this summer count!
You can in fact join a wide range of summer volunteer programs throughout the year! Summer program availability is a little more restricted than at other times, so we encourage you to book your summer volunteer abroad adventure early to guarantee your space. Program fees start from as little as £647 for one week.
If you are planning to take a course that involves many years of study, or one that doesn’t accommodate a full year out, then this may be a great opportunity for you to experience overseas travel. Use this time wisely to create an amazing experience and travel somewhere in the world that you may never get the chance to in the future.
