Work Abroad: The Basics

International Volunteer Organizations (488)

About this list

This is a comprehensive list of international volunteer-sending organizations (Canadian and US NGOs and placement agencies), which have each been coded based on country, region, sector, fees and duration. To maximize your results, select only one or two filters at a time. Remember to keep an open mind, especially if you are filtering by country or region. Going to a place you know nothing about is often more enriching than choosing a country that you already know. The larger the cultural divide between your home country and host culture, the greater learning experience.
