School Trips - Ethical and Sustainable Volunteering

Kaya Responsible Travel

Home / Trips Abroad / Ethical and Sustainable Volunteering

We believe that volunteering is for everyone which is why we have carefully crafted projects especially for under-18s. These projects offer a range of experiences such as teaching, building, sports coaching, and lion rehabilitation and are a great way to explore your passions. While on a project you will learn and develop skills and adapt to new environments, all with the support of the Kaya staff and our teams on the ground. Not only will this look great on your CV but it will allow you meet new (potentially helpful!) contacts, gain experience, and gain confidence!

Who doesn't love visiting a new country? We have under-18s projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America so if there is a destination you had in mind we can use that as a great starting point for your trip!

One thing that sets these projects apart is the level of support you will receive. We offer accommodation, meals, and airport transfers (check individual listing for details) as part of our projects and most importantly 24hr support on the ground.
