ENVIRONMENT

Environmental projects for youth!

The youth environmental camps have a holistic and regenerative approach. The aim is to carry out several initiatives which, taken together, will have a sustainable impact on local communities and on biodiversity. The educational aspect is very important in a youth humanitarian trip, the aim being to learn from the experience, understand the purpose of the assignment, and contribute to its impact

WILDLIFE

Wildlife projects for youth!

Discovering biodiversity, studying the behaviour of certain animals in their natural habitat, protecting endangered species, making children aware of the importance of animal welfare and respect... these are the objectives of the teenagers that take part in animal protection projects. Animal shelters are also part of the humanitarian trips for the young people, and offer an in-depth learning experience in animal care, supervised by local professionals

COMMUNITIES

Humanitarian projects for youth!

Community projects as part of humanitarian youth trips are naturally adapted to teenagers. Activities mainly revolve around workshops in schools or cultural centres (sports, arts, educational workshops, etc.) or the renovation of infrastructures, small gardening jobs, painting, etc. in teams. We will always try to mix groups of international students and local students so that the cooperative work is long term and involves cultural exchange.

Youth humanitarian trip with Freepackers

It is never too early for young people to embark on a humanitarian trip and take an interest in social or environmental causes. Taking advantage of school holidays to discover a country and undertake a humanitarian mission has become increasingly popular.

How do humanitarian trips benefit youth?

On a humanitarian project, youth can experience life immersed in another culture, while positively impacting the lives of local communities.

Youth can gain real-world experience, become a part of international communities and have insights into the complexities of today’s world.

Humanitarian trips can help youth envision their future and gain insight into their options when it comes to college or jobs.

A humanitarian trip will look attractive on a resume, and showcase qualities important for any career.

Where to volunteer as a teen?

There are plenty of humanitarian trip opportunities worldwide. A young person can look into projects in education, construction, renovation, environmental and wildlife protection. There are also plenty of summer camps you can join!

What to expect from a youth humanitarian trip

Freepackers offers a wide variety of youth humanitarian projects. What you will be doing depends on the project you choose, though there are some similarities between all of them. You will be part of a multicultural team and will have constant support and supervision on your project. You will gain new skills and a more global perspective. Expect to go outside your comfort zone and experience a new culture as well. You will make memories to last a lifetime!

Examples of youth humanitarian trips

The sky’s the limit with our youth humanitarian trips! There are summer camps where youth can engage in renovation projects in Thailand, educational safaris studying the wildlife of Kenya, marine protection programs in Bali and so much more! There are also other trips such as teaching English to children, cultural immersion trips and environmental and wildlife protection programs, just to name a few.
