The innovative Volunteer programs abroad platform

Team Social Work is an innovative volunteer platform that is globally active. Our job is to connect socially engaged people with social projects worldwide. The founders of the voluntary work platform were desperately searching for the suitable project, the right organization and a program at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, the needs could not be satisfied.

Team Social Work was founded after a life-changing experience in Africa – made by one of the founders. Since then, there was the idea seeded in his mind to change the way of global voluntary work. We believe that there has to be a network. It should connect projects with volunteers – globally in a direct way. In order to master this huge challenge, we are in need of people who are dedicated to voluntary work, tourism and business. Projects can be submitted via our webpage. We will be happy to service you in finding your perfect volunteer abroad program!

Social projects can register free and publish these volunteer programs on our platform. Our newest web technology enables projects a variety of features to attract more helping hands. They can set up a profile, promote their activities and spread news to our community. The applicants benefit from the high transparency we offer. We list every registered project (for free) and provide important information around every project. Volunteers are able to compare each project components and fees. Compared to ordinary agencies and intermediaries which bundle their offerings into packages, Team Social Work allows to pick a customized voluntary work program.Volunteer Programs

Volunteer Abroad Programs

All volunteer programs show transparent fees and services. There are also very cheap volunteer abroad programs. Even volunteer opportunitites abroad with no fees, excellent service and high level of competence. Volunteers do not have to pay no additonal fees for our services. We want to establish fair opportunities at a reasonable price.

Contact social projects and get in touch with them immediately. We do not charge fees for administration or liaise from our volunteers. They only pay those fees that are caused by the project itself. Consequently, fees represent actual donations to the social project. We want to offer our volunteers a great and unique experience and projects the greatest benefits by keeping fees and services as transparent as possible.

Voluntary work abroad

Take a gap year. We offer short term and long term volunteer opportunities abroad. Social projects in developing countries are actively searching for qualified social workers. Primarily there is a need of voluntary work in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Usually you will do voluntary work with local co-workers or other volunteers together in the same social project. After you did voluntary work abroad you certainly come back with long lasting international friendships. Volunteering is a great possibility to have a network abroad. Search, compare and choose between a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Programs in a foreign far away developing country offer big adventures. Be faced with daily new tasks and challenges. Voluntary work abroad help to discover new talents and skills.

Meaningful Travel & Voluntourism

Meaningful travel or Voluntourism is a combination of vacation and volunteering. Take a gap year and travel around. Traveling alone is an amazing experience but it could be also demanding. Alternatively, plan your next journey with your best friends or join a small group. The platform has projects located on every continent. Currently most projects are in sub-saharan Africa. While you are travelling, discover unique places. Explore breath-taking locations. And spot the unspoiled countryside of developoing countries. Volunteering in developing countries also means: treasures of art, tradition, handicraft, culture and history. Voluntourism is a big profit for both, volunteers and social projects. Team Social Work guarantees a great service to their customers. Our service is free of charge for users. Our platform takes no fees from our volunteers. Do not hesitate to use our services and our contact form.

Our service team is looking forward to get in touch with you.
