Volunteer Abroad During Winter Break

Please note that these programs are not long enough to meet the overseas experience requirement for INTL majors.

This year for the academic winter break GoEco is offering a wide variety of international volunteer opportunities for students from all over the world in the fields of education and community development, wildlife conservation, environmental technologies and  sustainable development, and more.

GoEco is happy to present an extremely unique volunteer opportunity, that encourages students to bring thier own interests and ideas to the local community. A team of international volunteers will live together in shared volunteer quarters, eat traditional Thai food together, and teach English, sports, art, music, and more to local children. One to eight week placements are available, leaving lots of time to make new friends, travel around and get to know the incredible beauty of Thailand. Moreover, you will help to ensure a positive future for children-in-need.
