Because we take full accountability for what we do from the moment you first contact us, until the moment you return home.

We cannot wait to help you find out what you’re capable of.

Gold Standard of Support

Safety is everything to us and has been for over 25 years. We wouldn’t dream of contracting-out your safety to third parties, as some do. Instead, we employ, thoroughly vet, and train all our own staff. Together, we provide a world-class support network to help you thrive.

Hassle-free approach

We take care of everything, so you don’t have to. Shopping around for insurance, organising airport pickups, and finding safe, clean accommodation all takes time and extra money. We take care of it all for you, and it’s included in the price as standard.

Make a Real Impact

This isn’t just a holiday and we don’t want to waste your time. That’s why we invest in planning, measurement tools, and training resources. This means any project you choose is meaningful and creates real, positive change where it’s needed the most.

Projects Abroad Madagascar have incredible staff members. They were able to improve on previously established projects and develop them into something that the community needed, wanted and benefited from. Additionally, they were there for us 100% of the time.

Volunteer in the USA

Whether you’re from outside the U.S. and want to experience this vast, diverse nation as a volunteer, or you’re an American looking to travel outside your hometown, this guide will help you figure out what sort of volunteer projects you can do based on region.

From volunteering with horses on a ranch in Wyoming, wildlife conservation in the marshes of Florida and the wild mountains of Colorado, or assisting with youth development in the south, there’s a project out there to meet any level of experience, interest, or duration requirement.

Unique to the United States are the opportunities to volunteer with specific native American populations — from the Navajo in the south to a myriad of tribes in the Pacific Northwest.
