Volunteering or interning in Asia will give you an in-depth look at this fascinating continent and its ancient cultures. We offer volunteer, internship, summer programs, winter break, spring break opportunities in 7 Asian countries. These are not light, “voluntourism” or “fetch a cup of coffee” internships. These are legitimate volunteer and internship work placements.

Bring a smile to an orphans face in India, explore the world of Buddhist monks in Nepal or Thailand, take part in a thriving commercial center by interning in Auckland, help typhoon-ravaged Tacloban City in the Philippines. So much to do, so little time!

ELI - International Volunteer programs open the door to cultural immersion by putting you side by side with local residents as they work to make the world a better place.
