Channel your energy and enthusiasm towards change – both within the local community and within yourself! Connect-123 will work with you to select the best-fit volunteer program for you, taking into account your interests, skills and goals. We offer a wide range of program areas including education, social work, human rights, economic development, health care and many more.

Both start dates and durations are flexible, according to your schedule, and our local, on the ground staff will be with you to guide you every step of the way!

As John Ruskin once said, ‘The highest reward for a person’s work is not what they get for it, but what they become because of it.’ Take a look at what volunteering abroad in each of our program locations involves – and imagine what you might become!
