No matter what your age, A Broader View can organize a suitable and cost-effective international volunteer experience for you. Over the last few years A Broader View has hosted an increasing number of seasoned travelers looking for a fulfilling international volunteer program.
Some our most dedicated and repeat ABV volunteers have been older, mature travelers. A Broader View programs thrive on the skills and patience which older volunteers bring to a project site. Skilled professionals are a vital asset to our local partners, and openly welcome doctors, nurses, dentists, and teachers at overcrowded and understaffed clinics, schools, orphanages and hospitals.
Some of our most popular for Mature Volunteers
- English teaching in Chile
- Refugee camp/school in Ghana
- Woman support project in Colombia
- Health outreach in Peru
- Kindergarten project in the Galapagos
- Community development in Nepal
What our ABV alumni say about their experiences?
"A Broader View was incredible in preparing us for this journey. I was very nervous, but ABV took us step by step through all the processes we need to ready us for this trip. Also, we felt very comfortable asking questions and they were immediately responsive. Sarah, Oliver and their staff portrayed a very good picture of what we would be experiencing, thank you."
"Volunteering with ABV was a humbling experience. I wish more people could come and provide their time and talents for a great cause. Quito feels like a safe place. Host family was the true meaning of family. Ecuadorian food is amazing"
"ABV was instrumental in providing me with an experience I will never forget. It was bitter-sweet to see how "the other half" lives. It seems they are satisfied with their lives, even though they don´t have much. I was also glad to have an opportunity to learn Spanish and meet travelers from around the world."
"I had a fantastic experience all the way around with ABV. From the time I inquired about their programs, to almost the day before I left to come to Costa Rica, ABV was continually in touch with me making sure everything was arranged, taken care of, answered any questions I had. ABV is a very professional organization and one I would volunteer with again."
I liked the country coordinator immediately. She took me into town and showed me where I could buy things I needed, and many times called to see if everything was going Okay. Nice follow up that I had not experienced with other country coordinators with other volunteer organizations.
"Sarah, and the the USA staff were very helpful with all of my questions and needs preparing for this journey. I appreciated their timeliness in responding electronically. I felt very positive and prepared for this trip due to ABV's support. I did a great deal of research with many similar organizations like ABV and I felt that I made the best decision to go with them. Thank you."
