Frontier Construction Projects

Construction projects need volunteers to provide basic levels of infrastructure upon which communities can build sustainable livelihoods. Manpower is always required to keep these projects developing and volunteers can significantly improve a community by offering their help.

 Working on a construction project gives volunteers the chance to work alongside local people and get to know the community much better, becoming fully aware of the positive impact they will be having. Day to day work can be varied – building schools, homes, and community centres, and volunteers will gain a greater understanding of the challenges that developing communities face worldwide. Volunteering on a construction project is an important and valuable contribution to developing communities, and brings together a larger effort that is working towards the improvement and sustainability practices of those in underprivileged conditions.

With more than 20 years of experience in running community development and construction projects worldwide, Frontier can find the ideal placement for you, wherever you want to go and whatever you want to achieve. Click on “Apply Now”, fill in the online application form and a volunteer adviser will call you back to discuss your options and answer any questions.
