Community Development Abroad

Community development projects provide some of the most diverse and fulfilling experiences by providing volunteers with a vast array of opportunities from local construction work, to teaching in a foreign country, or learning about environmental conservation efforts. No matter what you become involved with, community development volunteering offers the opportunity to make an impact in various ways in the community and see first-hand the positive impact one can make on the community.

Community development volunteering is a rare chance to become immersed in the day to day life of the local people in the community. This authentic cultural experience is one that cannot be gained without working alongside the local people and becoming accustomed to various cultures. Frontier offers a variety of projects that are continuously updating to serve areas that are most in need, allowing you as a volunteer to see the lasting and positive effect you chose to leave on an underprivileged community.

With more than 20 years of experience in running community development projects worldwide, Frontier can find the ideal placement for you, wherever you want to go and whatever you want to achieve. Click on “Apply Now”, fill in the online application form and a volunteer adviser will call you back to discuss your options and answer any questions.

Take a look at our community development placements and experience the trip of a lifetime:
