Everything you need to know about how, where and for how long you can volunteer abroad with VAP...
Workcamps (2 to 4 weeks)
Workcamps typically bring together a temporary community of 8-30 international volunteers from different backgrounds to provide services to local community projects. The volunteers carry out unskilled tasks that would not otherwise be possible. The practical work is only part of the main objective. The work is a tool and method to promote intercultural understanding and friendship between the volunteers and with the local community.
Skills in Action programme
VAP is looking into the possibility of enlarging the range of projects available for older volunteers (40+) under a separate scheme. We feel that there are many people who may be retired, or would like to take a break from work to do something worthwhile and at the same time enjoy a new experience in a different surrounding.
Medium and Long Term Volunteering (1 to 12 months)
VAP’s Medium/Long Term Volunteering (M/LTV) Programme gives you the chance to volunteer abroad from 1 to 12 months, working in a project organised by one of the many grassroots organisations that VAP co-operates with around the world. M/LTV is not only about work, but it is also a unique experience of combining living abroad with learning a new culture and getting to know the local people, while being deeply involved with a project and its aims.
