Project Trust is an innovative youth development and education charity providing long-term overseas volunteering placements for 17 – 19 year olds.
From our base on the Hebridean Isle of Coll, we select 300 young people from across the UK for long-term voluntary teaching and social care projects in Africa, Asia and the Americas every year.
Since 1967 we have provided nearly 7,000 young people with a unique international volunteering experience, which allows them to both develop a wide range of essential transferable skills, and gain valuable work experience.
We provide all volunteers with extensive training and support before, during and after their time overseas, to maximise both the educational value of their experience and impact they have in their projects.
Our returned volunteers now receive a One Awards level 3 qualification in ‘Global Volunteering and Citizenship’ – formal recognition of their learning, commitment and dedication.
