Volunteer with children, in underprivildeged communities or coach sports to kids abroad. Gain valuable work experience whilst making a difference on our medical programmes. If animals are your thing then volunteer at one of our conservation & wildlife programmes or if you're a hands-on kind of person then one of our building projects could suit you - we really do have a volounteer project to suit everyone!
