Job Description


As a UK Charity, Lattitude are able to offer up to 50% bursaries to UK Nationals for Australia & New Zealand placements!

(AND £1000 discount for Ecuador & Argentina Long Term Roles)


Lattitude Global Volunteering is an international youth development charity (established in 1972 as GAP Activity Projects) that provides overseas volunteering opportunities for 17-25 year olds worldwide. Our 3-12 month placements include Teaching, Medical, Outdoor Activities, Sports, Social work, Community Support Work, Conservation & Environment. We now also have shorter term, 2 to 12 week, Animal Welfare & Marine Conservation projects in Greece, and 6 week summer projects in Ecuador & Ghana. 

All our placements include food and board, (some within local family homes to help become truly immersed in the local life & culture) and some even pay an allowance to cover expenses.

Our mission is to educate & develop young people worldwide by providing opportunities to volunteer abroad and to make a positive difference to others through a challenging, structured and supported overseas experience in a culture and community different from their own.  Our placements are designed to develop life and employability skills in an appropriately challenging way.  We work hard to ensure that each volunteer is matched with a placement that is most suited to their skills & experience, and that we believe will help them achieve the most positive outcome. We have developed long-term relationships with our hosts and have in-country Lattitude staff to settle you in and assist when required. We provide extensive support before, during and after our placements and this is reflected in the large number of volunteers who tell us that the support they have received from Lattitude was one of the main reasons they would recommend us.
