Join our next project

We are now recruiting for the 2018 international project, which will take place between August and October 2018. You can apply here.

The closing date for applying is May 1st. All applicants will be interviewed either on Skype or in person in Cardiff.

requirements - the person

We are looking for volunteers who want to work with disadvantaged young people and marginalised adults, who want to make a difference and who are ready for a challenging adventure. We offer intensive training so experience is not a requirement - but a commitment to not just participating in, but contributing to, a life changing experience is mandatory.

It's worth reviewing recent projects to better understand the benefits and challenges previous volunteers have experienced.



We ask each volunteer for a contribution of £950 towards the cost of the expedition. This goes towards the cost of training, flights, accommodation, food and overland travel.  We can offer a range of suggestions and ideas which previous volunteers have found useful in fund-raising.

World at Play is committed to accepting volunteers regardless of their resource and background, as such there is a bursary available for volunteers who struggle to pay the full fee.


A compulsory training week will take place at Atlantic College in South Wales in early August.  The expedition will begin one week later.
