If you are a student, you may be looking for ways to travel the world without having to spend too much money. Or you may be looking to boost your resume. We have good news – there are ways to combine these two things. There are student travel options that involve work experience while you travel. Have a look at the volunteering and other options below and see if something looks like a plan you want to follow.
Spain – If you would like to experience one of the most passionate countries in the world, consider teaching English in Spain. Teaching English or becoming an au pair are great ways to experience this amazing country and still earning some money.
Yachts – A summer job on a yacht may be just the thing to explore new places, meet new people, and get acquainted with the ocean. Working on a yacht is hard work and requires long hours, but it is worth it if you enjoy the ocean, beautiful sunsets, and exploring new places.
South Africa – South Africa is one of the most beautiful countries in the world but they are also still a developing country with poverty and unemployment issues. You can do community work in South Africa and make a difference in the lives of children and young people. You will definitely learn a lot there.
Australia – You can travel to Australia to work on a farm or ranch. You will learn all about the farm animals and how to work with them. You will also learn about the machines and how to work them. Again, this is hard work and long days but is absolutely rewarding and an experience that you will treasure for the rest of your life.
Costa Rica – You can apply to programs like Project Abroad or Frontier to help out Costa Rica with protecting their wildlife. They have large numbers of different species of plants, trees, birds, insects, etc.
