Have you got what it takes to volunteer abroad?

Around the world, your skills can make a difference. The communities we work in need experienced professionals like you.

As a VSO volunteer, you’ll live and work abroad alongside local professionals, helping improve the quality of life for people who need it most. What’s more, you’ll experience a different culture in a way few people ever can.

You’ll change lives – including your own. Take the first step towards volunteering abroad with VSO today:
