Short-Term Special Projects

These structured programmes give volunteers a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience by participating in activities as part of a group.

Short-term Specials are structured differently to other types of volunteering programmes with Projects Abroad, taking into consideration the requirements of younger volunteers. They have a set itinerary for the duration of the project which includes evening and weekend activities. The group will also spend each day with a member of Projects Abroad staff, who they will work alongside at the placement and who will supervise the evening and weekend activities.
