Affordable Under 18 Volunteer Abroad Programs From £180

with Plan My Gap Year

PMGY was founded by volunteers for volunteers. We are an independent social venture, not a corporate machine. Our volunteers become part of something really special. We work together with local communities in the developing world to actualise long-term sustainable goals. We recognise that travel can be meaningful, everyone has something to give and that we can make a positive impact.

At PMGY, we work hard to ensure that our opportunities are affordable. We are also 100% transparent with our fees – something our volunteers really appreciate. Our structured programmes create the perfect platform for you to see the world, meet like-minded people and engage in meaningful volunteer work. We have teams in the UK and in our host destinations who will support you 24/7 throughout your time with us. Furthermore, every project on our network is regularly risk-assessed by our UK team to ensure our set up is safe and that our volunteers are making a positive impact.

There is also a great social element to our programmes. All our projects receive volunteers from around the world throughout the year so even if you’re travelling alone, you’re going to meet heaps of people along the way. Plus you’ll have plenty of opportunity to travel the country with your newfound travel buddies – it’s all part of the PMGY experience!

So if you’re thinking of doing something a little different on your next trip abroad, then why not drop us a line and find out what amazing things you could be doing.
