Are you looking to make the absolute most of your university holiday? If yes, great news! volunteering with Travel Teacher in the summer months is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We would hate for you to look back and wish that you did something more with your cherished time off from studying.

 Embarking on a volunteer abroad programme with Travel Teacher during your degree course adds more purpose to your academic downtime. Students join our programmes for a multitude of reasons; for education, fun, to see the world, to make an impact.  Whatever the reason, students find that our programmes not only allow them to see the world but also provides invaluable career development opportunities at the same time.

Having the opportunity to volunteer overseas during your time at university is something that shouldn’t be passed up.  You will have the chance to reinforce the strength and meaning of your studies by developing your own transferable skills, which will eventually be used in conjunction with your degree course in order to assist you in getting a job.  We have seen many of our alumni go on to successfully find jobs and careers related to their volunteering experience.

While your volunteering experience doesn't have to be in the industry you want to pursue as a career, it can certainly improve your career prospects as well as your efficacy as a volunteer. Our programmes centre around education, sport and community development, all are geared towards participants developing teamwork, leadership and intercultural competency.

Volunteering in environments that carry certain hardships is seen as an ‘real life’ experience, add the fact that you will be doing this overseas is certainly a step out of your comfort zone.

When you arrive to your volunteer programme, you will quickly forge a bond with the other volunteers as you roll up your sleeves together and get stuck in to your project.

Aside from making a difference, you’ll have the biggest adventure of your life, your programme will be an immersive, intensive experience packed with activities and exploration!  You will get to experience lots of ‘firsts’  Join us and experience a world unavailable to normal tourists!
