There is now a wide choice of organisations offering international volunteer projects on both a short and long term basis, but if you are new to this area and not sure of who to volunteer with, Provide Volunteering have created a list of organisations to get you started.
However, Provide Volunteering does not have any formal links with any of the organisations listed and only gives this information as a guide.
Provide Volunteering urge all volunteers interested in international volunteering opportunities to check out possible organisations and companies before handing over any money or leaving the country. A guide to Ethical International Volunteering can be found here, while a more formal way of applying for International positions can be found at the VSO website.
