Teens and High School Students

Where can a teen volunteer? Joining GoEco’s Under 18 volunteer adventures is a great way for teenagers to have a meaningful volunteer experience while also getting to enjoy the local sights and culture with a group of like-minded participants. These projects have been carefully selected and include a higher level of supervision. Anyone aged 15 – 17 is welcome to participate and we highly encourage teens who are considering careers related to animal welfare, conservation or humanitarian aid. For program that are not specifically designed for teens, but happily accept those aged 16 or 17, who have parental consent, see here.
