Connecting People with Projects

International Internships and Volunteer Opportunities

Who are we?

Global Nomadic empowers positive change by connecting people with projects

We believe real change can happen when people find life-enhancing opportunities. By empowering people to travel & explore the world, they gain new skills, developing themselves whilst making a real contribution.

We provide access to vetted, worthwhile international internships in a wide range of professional fields.

By enabling young professionals to gain experience and further their career through international work placements, we are able to support NGOs around the world to carry out their community-building work.

Global Nomadic is a trusted community marketplace connecting people with NGO projects around the world.

We offer international internships, TEFL courses and volunteer abroad placements. Since our start in 2009, we have sent 1,000+ interns, volunteers and TEFL teachers on projects and courses in 40+ countries. Whether it’s Human Rights & Social Sustainability, Environmental Conservation or Wildlife Rehabilitation, we partner with organisations making a real difference in their field.
