Europe is full of opportunities for anyone looking to experience life alongside local communities. You can volunteer for NGOs and homestays in Portugal, Spain, The Netherlands, Italy, France, Hungary and man others. On a volunteer trip, you can collaborate with a host in the Worldpackers community for a few hours a day and in exchange receive accommodation and other benefits that could include meals and certifications.
To be accepted at one of our European hosts, the most important thing is to show your willingness to be part of the project and your intent to help. Traveling as a volunteer is nothing more than trading some free hours you would spend getting to know the place for a few hours of help collaborating with the local community. Through the stories of other travelers in our community, you can learn everything you need to know about how to be a volunteer abroad.
