Frontier Partner Projects

Frontier Partner Projects

 

When you're looking through the website, you'll notice that there are three kinds of project to choose from: Frontier Partner projects, Frontier Group Projects and Frontier Connect Projects.

 

What is a Frontier Partner project?

 

As the pioneer of eco-volunteering and ethical gap year travel, we have been approached by many organisations over the years for assistance with conservation and humanitarian projects across the globe. The needs of these organisations vary from project to project. They may require funding or resources, additional manpower in the form volunteers, specialist skills or perhaps simply they need to build awareness of their activities by advertising themselves internationally. At Frontier, we're very careful about the organisations and projects we partner with and you can be confident that all projects supported by Frontier meet our highest standards and endorse Frontier's mission.

 

"Without working with Frontier, we simply wouldn't have been able to help the amount of disadvantaged children that we have."

"Partnering with an international organisation such as Frontier has enabled us to draw from people with wide-ranging and varied skills, hard to find locally."
Nepal Community Work Partner

 

"The professional way in which Frontier's volunteers have helped us conduct our research has really improved understanding of the Sea Turtles we so dearly want to protect"
Costa Rica Sea Turtle Conservation Partner

 


What can I expect on a Frontier Partner project?

 

Staff

On a Frontier Partner project, you'll be welcomed and supported by the local community representatives, specialists or workers of our partner organisations. Host community members will offer advice and support and you will be looked after by your homestay family, a volunteer housekeeper, or landlady.

 

Food

You'll be offered delicious, authentic, home cooked meals, prepared by your homestay family, volunteer cook, or housekeeper. You may like to sample local specialities from a street market or cook along with other project volunteers in the volunteer house.

 

Location

You'll be welcomed by the local community and encouraged to adopt the local customs, culture and traditions of your host country. We have a wide variety of both rural and urban locations for you to choose from so there is something for everybody.

 

Accommodation

You will have a bed in a volunteer house or in a welcoming homestay with access to a shower and other amenities.

 

Entertainment

You'll have free time to explore the sights, sounds and smells of your host country and enjoy the hospitality of your hosts.

 

Other volunteers

You'll be living and working independently or in a small group of international or host country volunteers, not necessarily recruited by Frontier, either with a local community or with a partner organisation or institution.

 


Last but not least!

 

This information is designed to give you ideas and inspiration for your project abroad with Frontier. It's intended as a guide only and although details are correct at time of publishing, all projects are subject to change.

 

Just remember...

Part of the excitement of a gap year experience is the unpredictability of life in a remote location and the thrill of the unknown;

  • Changing weather conditions may mean you need to relocate in order to avoid floods or cyclones!
  • Seasonal variations in wildlife populations may affect what animals and plants you are likely to encounter.
  • The immediate needs of a local community may affect what types of community development work is the priority.
  • Term times, local festivals, and holidays will affect the number of children in schools.
  • Accommodation arrangements may vary depending on availability.

 

Remember to check our website regularly to find the most up-to-date project information and perhaps even discover a new project you haven't considered before.

 

Alterations

As the time of your project approaches, we'll tell you about any alterations to your activities so you'll be well prepared for your adventure. Don't forget, whilst on your project you're there to provide help and skills wherever they are needed most, rather than to impose what you want to do upon the local people. With this in mind, you can be sure to have a rewarding gap experience and be confident that all your efforts really have made a difference.
