International Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer Abroad has international volunteer opportunities in five placement categories. Although skill and experience is important, a sincere willingness to learn and contribute is often all that is required to make a valuable impact. BaseCamp believes that by educational programs that properly prepare international volunteers for the short and long term volunteer placements, as well as, the emotional adjustments necessary to living overseas, we can achieve a positive impact and experience for both the international volunteers and the local peoples. BaseCamp with its experienced in-country staff, well vetted volunteers and organizations plus their intensive 2 day and 7 day orientation program ensures that BaseCamp international volunteers are prepared for their volunteer placement as well as living in their host country.
