All kinds of people use us

Everyday, we’re approached by soon-to-be travellers who are looking to take part in journeys that extend beyond simply reclining on sunny beaches and working on that perfect tan.

Who travels with us?

People just like you! People seeking stimulating work and travel experiences.

Some are 'Gap Year' students: people who have places at college or university and want to take a year out before starting their studies. Many would like to see the world properly, learn new skills, a new language, meet new people, and learn about different cultures and locations.

Others come to us for help in finding paid work experience or an internship overseas - attracted by our work or language assistant programmes that will allow them to gain a unique skill, and potentially help with their future employment plans.

A growing segment of our customers are older, more experienced people, who want a break from the stressful pressures of work. They are often excited by the idea of escaping their ordinary lives for a while and embarking on a rewarding career break.

No matter what their motivations are for choosing to travel, our participants ultimately come to Twin Work & Volunteer because they want to experience something different. For example, they may be aware that on a world scale they are comparatively fortunate, and are therefore motivated to give something back, maybe by participating in a community or conservation project.

Whether you're 18 or 80, Twin Work & Volunteer is able to cater for your needs. All we ask is that you maintain a mature, dedicated and respectful attitude to your chosen overseas programme.

If you want to know more about any of our work or volunteer experiences or would simply like help choosing your ideal placement, please get in touch; we'd love to hear from you.
