  1. 1. Peace Corps

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock, chances are you’ve probably heard of the Peace Corps or even know someone who’s been a volunteer. U.S. citizens who are 18 years or older are eligible to serve in the Peace Corps for a 27 month assignment with no application costs in a variety of fields around the world. Apart from receiving a housing and living stipend, paid volunteers who successfully complete their assignment also get perks such as a financial package for transitioning back home and massive prestige!

    2. WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms)

    If you don’t have two years to spare to save the world, WWOOFing may be a better option for a bit more flexibility and the power of choice. WWOOF allows you to choose your own organic farm, stay duration, and volunteer work type through each country’s individual website. Although you won’t get paid to volunteer monetarily, you’ll be compensated with free room and board.


    3. Become a GVI Trust Scholar

    The folks over at GVI have an entire database full of volunteer projects around the world to browse through. While there’s a fee associated with the programs, the organization’s Trust Scholar program, their volunteer abroad scholarship, awards up to £2,000 to eligible applicants.

    Working with these smiles is so rewarding, no wonder you’re looking to become a lifer!


    4. SVP (Sudan Volunteer Programme)

    Paid volunteers in the Sudan Volunteer Programme work together to help Sudanese improve their English skills in order to open up better employment opportunities for individuals and communities. In addition to accommodations, participants receive a stipend for their teaching services and support throughout the duration of work. There’s tremendous freedom to choose how you teach, and you’ll still have plenty of free time to connect with the community and practice your own Arabic skills.


    5. United Nations Volunteer

    Yes, THE United Nations. The prominence of the UN’s volunteer program certainly reflects on its participant requirements, but those that fit the bill will discover some of the world’s top-notch paid volunteer jobs that carry more weight than the average line item on a resume. Over 2,000 assignments become available each year to carry out the United Nations’ mission of fostering peace and promoting development.


    6. HelpX

    Similar to WWOOF, HelpX shows tons of online listings of farms, ranches, small lodges, and hostels that offer food and stay in exchange for voluntary aid. HelpX is a great resource for paid volunteer work abroad for adults, who have a limited timeframe to work with and would like the flexibility of choosing what work they do and with who. Work directly with your host to sort out anything from dietary restrictions to how you can use your best skills!


    7. American Village Camps in France

    Help French children learn the joys of American summer camp right in their backyard! As a camp counselor at an American Village Camp, you get paid to volunteer running the camp, interacting with campers in English, and make sure everything goes smoothly according to camp standards and guidelines. Applying is free, and camp counselors receive a stipend, meals, and housing as part of the deal!


    8. Volunteer Forever Scholarship

    The Volunteer Forever is open to all participants of study, teach, work, and *most importantly* volunteer abroad participants.
