Best Volunteer Abroad Programs for Older Adults

Best Volunteer Programs for Older Adults

Have you ever wondered, what would be the best volunteer abroad options for older adults? Most of the volunteers seem to be still in their teens or twens, just leaving college and looking for an outstanding experience overseas before going to university. But, adventures and new cultural experiences are not just limited to young people! You might be astonished, how many volunteers we recently had, who are already between fifty or sixty years old.

And, as the story goes, especially older people can bring so much needed expertise and solid knowlegde to the people in developing countries! Sometimes even a mother comes with her elder son, or a whole family goes for family volunteering. Both generations join their efforts, combine adventure spirit and wisdom for a very special volunteer experience!

I have selected some outstanding examples which might inspire and encourage you for a volunteer adventure.
