As well as bringing lasting benefits to poor and vulnerable people, our Volunteer Programme serves to raise awareness in Jersey of global development issues. Overseas volunteering also plays an important part in Islanders’ own personal development. Many trips have led to lasting links with communities all over the world, and several local charities were born from the experience of volunteering abroad. More than 1,000 islanders have been involved in the delivery of over 100 projects in some of the world’s poorest communities.
Jersey Overseas Aid offer volunteering bursaries to contribute towards your living costs while you give up your time for others. To find out more about JOA's bursary programme and how to apply please visit our bursaries page.
