Volunteer Holidays

Volunteer holidays are a great way to explore the world whilst giving back to the local communities which you visit, rather than being just a tourist.  Volunteering holidays in environmental conservation or sustainable development will also get you meeting new people who share your passion for international development and travel. There are lots of reasons to go on a volunteer holiday and the experience is truly its own reward, but many people also utilise volunteer holidays to build skills for their career, gain certifications and enhance CVs or university applications.

What types of volunteering holidays can I go on?

Through one of Frontier’s volunteer holidays you can visit countries in any part of the world, from volunteering in an elephant sanctuary in Thailand to a marine conservation project in Belize. Frontier has projects that are as short as 3 weeks and as long as 30, so volunteers can fit one in over a holiday break or participate in a project over an entire gap year.  Frontier can accommodate groups or single travellers looking for an adventure on their holiday.  It just comes down to your interests and what you would like to gain from your volunteer holiday experience. 

Why go on a volunteering holiday with Frontier?

When researching volunteer holidays you want to be sure that the organisation providing your experience is truly having a positive impact on the country they bring foreign volunteer labour to.   Frontier is a non-profit research and conservation organisation that works in partnership with local governments and organisations to conduct work that these communities have agreed is a priority. Frontier staff members live on the project year round and develop close relationships with the local people we live and work among. You can trust that your volunteer holiday with Frontier will be an amazing life-changing experience for you, while genuinely addressing local needs in ways that are sensitive to the local culture and customs.
