Stay in a private room whilst volunteering!

Project & Pod News / 10 June 2023 Stay in a private room whilst volunteering!

Would you like to volunteer and stay in your own room? We have lots of private room options available around the world at our volunteer projects. 

Volunteering overseas comes in lots of shapes and sizes and although it can be fun to share a room with other volunteers, we have options for those who prefer a bit of privacy at the end of a hard day's volunteering. Some of our projects have private rooms for all volunteers, whilst in others you can pay an upgrade supplement to have your own room. 

Here is a list of the amazing options where you can stay in your own room: 

Caribbean Reef Conservation in Belize – private room option

You can stay on the private tropical island in your own beach cabana! Our volunteers spend the week living on the island and diving nearby on the reef to help conserve the Caribbean Sea. After an evening playing games with fellow volunteers or relaxing in the hammocks you can head to bed in your own beach hut, falling asleep to the sound of the waves!
