Oyster Worldwide are a personable and friendly company which has managed many existing projects since 2000. We take great pride in offering gap year and career break volunteering opportunities in 13 countries around the world. With Oyster you can make a genuine contribution to the lives of children, through medical work or teaching, or animals – from small and vulnerable turtles in Costa Rica, to friendly giants like the elephants of Thailand and South Africa.
We are committed to offering you first-class support and flexibility to suit your needs – whether you want a 2 week holiday with a difference or a 12 month gap year adventure we have the project to suit you! We also brief and informally interview every candidate for our voluntary roles so that they can make an informed decision regarding the suitability of the project and so that we can get to know everyone before we send them on their travels.
We offer a whole range of projects so you can get stuck into something you really love!
