Volunteering for the over 40s, 50s & 60s
You are never to old to volunteer! Globalteer doesn't cater only to young people; we have volunteering opportunities abroad for all ages. At Globalteer we get a much higher proportion of older volunteers than many organisations; which is just great for us and our projects on so many levels. Most of all because the mix of people from different backgrounds and age groups means our volunteers have a huge range of experience and knowledge to draw on which is of huge benefit to our projects. And of course the diversity of our volunteers makes the experience much richer for everyone. Interested in volunteering abroad for over 40s, 50s & 60s? Then Globalteer is a great match for you!

We often ask our older volunteers in particular why they choose to volunteer with us. Mostly they tell us it’s because we are a registered charity and non-profit. Also because Globalteer promotes ethical and responsible volunteering, something volunteers consider hugely important! And because we really look after you when you are actually volunteering.
Which Globalteer projects suit older volunteers?
If you interested in Volunteering Abroad for Older Adults then Globalteer is a great match for you! All our projects welcome mature volunteers. None of our projects have an upper age limit. The most important thing for us is that you are able to carry out at least some, if not all of the tasks required of our volunteers. There is some flexibility with tasks at certain projects; but we would recommend that you have a good level of fitness for any of our projects involving physical work in hot and humid climates. Read some of our accounts from older volunteers to see just how rewarding it can be to join our projects at any age!
