Plan My Gap Year offer a range of challenging but rewarding Under 18 volunteer abroad projects. You don’t need any experience, just 100% commitment, and it’s a great way to make a difference while developing a fabulous skill.
“I chose PMGY as the company to travel with over the summer after my AS year for a number of reasons – they were one of the very few offering a 17+ age range which made it more accessible for me. My time in India – from working with the kids both at the girls orphanage and the slum school to doing the Golden Triangle trip, to exploring numerous temples in Delhi – was an eye-opening, unforgettable experience, and I would urge anyone (particularly younger travellers) to get out there and see the world while helping others.” – HANNAH BELOK | UNITED KINGDOM
The shape and format of each programme for Under 18s remains exactly the same as our normal set up!
Our Under 18 programmes work in destinations with highly involved local teams who have set up great structures for younger volunteers.
Whether you choose wildlife, childcare, teaching or medical, all these options are available in our top destinations to Under 18 volunteers.
Under 18s represent a large number of our volunteers and many return the following year for more adventure!
