Volunteer to support agricultural projects overseas

Volunteer to support agricultural projects overseas

Placement Details

Concordia offers each year the opportunity to join more than 1500 short and medium term volunteer projects worldwide.

Agricultural Projects.

You will share a fantastic experience with a team of international volunteers from all over the world who you will live and work with!

You might join a local co-operative for the harvesting season or be involved in the life of a farm. This doesn’t usually involve direct contact with animals, although tasks might include helping with general maintenance. Often projects involving agriculture have a wider social aspect, such as working with people with disabilities, raising awareness of sustainable farming, education and so on. Many projects in our programme involve renovating or constructing buildings and infrastructure important for the life of a community. Tasks might involve renovating an old school, helping convert old buildings into social centres, or restoring old castles or historical buildings.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact us and we will be happy to help you find the right project for you.

PLEASE NOTE YOU NEED TO BE RESIDENT IN THE UK IN ORDER TO APPLY FOR A PROJECT THROUGH CONCORDIA.
