Kenya Volunteer ProgramsPlan to spend your summer break, vacation or gap year with us, serving communities in Kenya through numerous overseas internship and volunteer abroad programs offered by the International Volunteer Travel.
Often called “The Pride of Africa”, Kenya is famous for many things including marathon runners, expansive nature parks teaming with wildlife, beautiful sandy beaches and amazing cultural diversity.
We invite you to come with us and discover the beauty of Kenya, the legendary original safari country. As you participate in one or more of our overseas programs, and impact on the lives of the Kenyan people, you will not leave the way you came - you will discover yourself.
We have provided lots of information about the African country of Kenya in the Kenya Country Profile Page.
Combination of Programs
In addition to Volunteer placement in Kenya, the International Volunteer Travel also offers opportunities for Internships Abroad in Kenya, the Language and Cultural Experience, and the Kenya Adventure Tours and Holidays program. With exception of the Language and Cultural Experience, which must be combined with another program, all Kenya programs are offered independently or in combination.
