Who can volunteer abroad with AIAV?

Our volunteering abroad programs are suitable for individuals or groups who have the desire at heart to use their skills and experiences to help achieve social impact, share cultures, and as well experience the real everyday life of locals. If you or your group fall under one of the following categories, then you’re the right person for one of our projects that are ongoing all year round.

Students/Graduates 

You are a high-school student/graduate, university (undergraduate or postgraduate) student/graduate. You are on your vacation and looking to be part of something meaningful, a community abroad, or perhaps you have taken a gap year for a carrier change or to gain experience in a particular field, and you want to be socially involved abroad without spending a lot of money. We are always happy to prepare your way and then connect you with our wide network of projects abroad. Apart from credible projects that you’ll be placed on, you’ll also get access to our online fundraising platform to launch a campaign for financial support from your family, friends, and well-wishers after you have been accepted into a program and duly registered.

Working Professionals

Arm-in-Arm Volunteers (AIAV) offers incredibly life-altering volunteer abroad programs for working professionals. You may be looking for a chance to give back to a community, explore new options, or experience difference cultures, our international volunteering programs may serve you right. Participating in AIAV’s volunteer abroad program, you would make a real difference in the lives of some people living in tough circumstances, work creatively, push your comfort limits, and eventually rediscover yourself in the process.

Families

Doing volunteer travel with your family could be the best decision you have ever made, among others, to pass on important values to your family members and help them develop compassion and social understanding, spend quality time in a positive environment, learn about social issues, and get a new perspective on the world. We organize all aspects of your program, so you and your family can focus on volunteering and making an important contribution to the need of others.

Seniors

Seniors are incredibly cherished and are valuable to our local partners because of their expertise, experience, and patience. We are much grateful to assist in providing the right kind of project to support. Whether you like coaching a sport, love to cook, or are a handy man, a qualified medical professional, or love to teach and be a mentor, our opportunities enable you to do the things you know best in support of a local project or initiative anyhow possible. There is no better way to get to know the locals at places that you visit and make awesome friends than joining them in dealing with issues they care about and doing fun things with them that they also enjoy doing.
