Program Overview

Program Description:

Xploreo volunteering is the most flexible, affordable, DIY non-credit immersionoption out there. Take the uncertainty out of your experience abroad by browsingour pool of vetted NGOs around the world and selecting to start a conversation withone that fits what you’re looking for. If you meet the criteria they’re looking for andit’s a match, you can book directly with the charity. That means any fees will godirectly to them, not a placement agency. Not sure of exactly what you’re lookingfor? We are happy to help recommend volunteer experiences and locations.Depending on the number of hours you want to be involved in volunteering and theavailability of the NGO, you have the flexibility to build your own daily schedule, andto make it as intensive or more vacation-esque as you desire. Some volunteeringexperiences include room and board. Xploreo also makes it possible to search forhomestays and language teachers, depending on your interest and time frame.Xploreo programs are open to anyone over the age of 18 who consider themselvesan independent traveler. While we do provide 24/7 call support and ensure thatlocal volunteer experiences and travelers are vetted and verified and connect on theground, Xploreo does not arrange a fully scheduled trip itinerary for you.  Instead,you are free to custom tailor your own experience abroad to ensure that it preciselymeets your requirements.  More about Xploreo: Xploreo is an online marketplace that directly connects peopleseeking immersive and authentic overseas experiences with the best vetted locallanguage teachers, volunteering opportunities, internships and homestay familiesaround the world.
