Ecoteer is a unique volunteer opportunities agency - offering a directory of cheap volunteer work opportunities, volunteer jobs abroad and working holidays. Our volunteer opportunities are cheap because we have eliminated the middleman slashing the price to volunteer abroad for gapyears, careerbreaks and working holidays. Ecoteer is changing the volunteer and working holiday industry.
"We are ’older’ volunteers who went traveling originally for one year and then extended the trip to 2 years. We worked on 7 different projects in Africa, Asia and Australia and the Cambodian project we went back to again in our 2nd year.
We found the whole experience very liberating, enlightening and would recommend it to anyone - although you have to be prepared for a few challenges on the way!!
Pauline Andrews, 2011

The main reason to volunteer abroad with Ecoteer is the cost benefit. Ecoteer volunteer work and working holiday opportunities all cost the minimal amount and any fees you pay go 100% to the project. Volunteer opportunities do vary but in general all you need to pay for are transportation, travel insurance and spending money. Accommodation is always covered and food is generally given at Ecoteer volunteer projects abroad.
