If you're eager to have unique, amazing experiences on your next holiday – or perhaps during a gap break adventure – why not volunteer abroad?
Giving you the chance to travel to exotic destinations, see incredible things and make a real difference to the places you visit and communities that live there, i-to-i trips are perfect for people searching for a worthwhile break with a difference.
With us, you can go far beyond the reach of most tourists and backpackers by really getting involved with local communities and completely immersing yourself in their culture.
Here at i-to-i, we offer a range of fantastic experiences, from conserving natural environments and working with animals to teaching English and valuable internships.
One of the leading gap travel organisations in the UK, we can help you to find the perfect voluntary work abroad.
Amazing experiences volunteering abroad
Whether you want to work with animals, take part in sports coaching or help construct vital buildings, i-to-i will have a voluntary project that suits you – and that can really make a difference.
Our trips can take you to a variety of awe-inspiring destinations across the world, from South Africa and China to Costa Rica and Australia.
Among the amazing initiatives you can be a part of is volunteering with wildlife – something that can allow you to have close-up encounters with a range of fascinating and endearing creatures. And, of course, help safeguard their future.
Just one of the life-changing wildlife projects you could join in with is sea turtle conservation on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.
Here, your time and effort will make a real difference to this wonderful endangered species. As well as enjoying a rare chance to get close to these magnificent creatures, you will patrol beaches to ensure their safety, such as by clearing the sands prior to their nesting season.
Alternatively, you might want to embark on internships abroad. In doing so, you can learn valuable new skills that will last far beyond your time travelling, while also making an amazing contribution to your chosen destination.
For example, you could head to Peru and help unearth historical sites in Lima. Along the way, you'll gain hands-on archaeological experience by extracting, cleaning and cataloguing findings.
And your work is essential – due to lack of funding, many of these sites would have to be abandoned without the time and effort donated by people like you.
These options are just the tip of the iceberg. With us, you can teach English overseas – and take TEFL courses – as well as help develop local communities and construct vital housing.
