Due to the global spread of COVID-19, all GOAT Volunteers placements are temporarily on hold.  We’ll continue to monitor the situation and will update this space when more progress is made in limiting the spread of the virus and travel restrictions ease.

The Americas & Europe

Easily accessible and spectacularly beautiful, these countries offer volunteers the opportunity to brush up on their Spanish while making a positive impact.



There’s so much more to this magnificent continent than chasing the Big 5 on safari (though that’s one of the best parts)…volunteer in Africa and you’ll likely return home a different person.



The Far East is a (very) long plane ride for most volunteers. But, with the highest mountains and some of the best food in the world, not to mention exceptionally friendly people, a trip to Asia is worth it.
