Short Volunteering and Adventure Travel Trips

For first time travellers or those with a shorter time in which to go away, short trips travelling and volunteering abroad can be a fantastic way to have a worthwhile experience, experience the culture, and still give something back to the community to a long running conservation or community project.

If you’re looking to add a volunteering experience into a larger chunk of travelling, looking for an adventure trip, or wanting to use a shorter period of time to volunteer, Frontier has projects that will be suitable for your requirements. You’ll be able to meet new people, learn about something new, and have a memorable experience, all within a shorter space of time.
