Kaya Responsible Travel offer volunteer and internship placements on over 150 sustainable community development and environmental initiatives in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Volunteer placements for under 18’s are selected to provide a greater level of supervision, with the same impactful work as all our Kaya projects.

How do I get started as a teen volunteer?

If you are under 18 and interested in volunteering, get in touch with one of our advisors today and we’ll find a great teen volunteer project that’s right for you!  We’ll talk you through everything to find you the perfect placement, and support you throughout your journey. Don’t let your age stand between you and the world! Become a better global citizen with Kaya!

To see the Big 5, work in a children’s centre, help to coach sports or build homes for young people.

Interested in protecting the environment?

Join our reforestation camp in South Africa this summer and help with environmental education, mural painting, solar cookers and tree planting. 

If you would rather come with people you already know:

Why not speak to your school about organising a school trip or talk to your family about planning to volunteer for your next summer vacation?

What do you need to do to take part in an under 18 volunteer project?


To be considered for our under 18 volunteer projects, all you need to do is attend a telephone interview, obtain a letter of consent from a parent or guardian and provide a reference from a teacher or trusted, family friend.
