Our program destinations in Brazil, India, Nepal, South Africa and Vietnam shine with incredible growth and confidence. While a constantly growing middle class is fortunate to enjoy the many comforts of a modern lifestyle, many other less fortunate people are fighting for survival. Some of our volunteering opportunities are:

Help a child with their multiplication tables, reading, or practicing English.
Come work on a turtle restoration project or at a wildlife reserve in Goa, India.

Empower women to succeed by working with literacy, tutoring in English or teaching job skills.
Kids with Disabilities Project

Programs for the Elderly

You are more than welcome to request placement in your program of choice. All final decisions however are made by the project manager on-site, who is most familiar with the program’s needs.
Xplore USA's volunteering projects abroad are always a mixture of tourism, adventure, project work and intercultural experiences.
You will benefit from your stay, as the people in your host country will benefit from your support. Whether for the development of social and intercultural skills, or as an addition to your resume, having experience as a volunteer in another country could be the deciding advantage in a future application procedure.
