Volunteering Solutions provides safe, guided and academically relevant volunteering, experiential learning and service learning trips for IB school students. Aimed at expanding learning beyond just the classrooms that transform students as ‘Global Citizens’ through diverse international field experiences, the trips are ideal for young adults.

Carefully crafted keeping the ‘CAS’ module in mind which is followed & pursued by most of the IB Schools across the world, the CAS trips incorporate the triple component of Creativity, Activity, and Service. VolSol also takes pride in its ability to customize each travel experience based on the group needs and specifications. Our project design makes sure that each student gets a culturally immersive, ‘hands-on’ and enriching international travel experience with our CAS based trips. 

Offered across more than 20 different countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America, the trips facilitated encompass a diverse range of opportunities that include Environmental Conservation and Nature Exploration Programs, Adventure, and Wildlife Programs, Cultural Exchange Programs as well as Global Exposure and Responsible Travel Programs. While the destination for each program and each group vary, our popular and preferred destinations include Thailand, Cambodia, Bali, Vietnam, Nepal, India, Tanzania, Peru, Ghana, South Africa, Kenya, and Spain.

Volsol has facilitated several CAS trips in the past, for several IB Schools Groups, some of which include:

  • Universal American School, Dubai (Volunteered in Nepal)
  • Millennium High School - NY, USA (Ghana Spring Break Trip)
  • Canadian Bilingual School- Kuwait (Vietnam)
  • Abraham Lincoln High School (China Trip)
" I took a group of 10 students with me to Beijing, China. It was an amazing experience the students all loved it and want to go back next year. I had a great experience from beginning to end that was well coordinated and cost efficient through Volunteering Solutions. I couldn't be happier with my overall experience. The Program coordinator made sure we had a good balance of volunteer and personal time. She knew better than we did actually what we were going to be able to handle or not handle and was extremely helpful. We stayed in the hostel and they did an amazing job with our food - they made sure that it wasn't the same thing every day. it was well organized and they were really thoughtful. The staff was very helpful with helping to make sure we had what we needed from doing laundry to getting us a birthday cake to helping us figure out the subway. The orphanage was really great. We enjoyed ourselves and the school was great too. The experience got my students to speak Chinese quickly."
