United Planet is a nonprofit organization with a mission to create a global community, one relationship at a time through voluntary service. Join programs ranging from one week to one year serving global communities in more than 25 countries. We’ll unlock your potential as a global citizen, empowering you to create a more peaceful, cohesive, and sustainable world during your gap year. You’ll be able to develop and utilize your skills in education, health, social work, sustainability, and more, while immersing in a culture outside your comfort zone. Our mission of unity means that both you and the host country will gain from your Quest.
“United Planet has provided me with an experience that changed my life. The staff were kind, supportive, and encouraging throughout my whole trip. They have helped me to become a lifelong partner in global connection and international outreach. There are no words to describe my appreciation and gratitude.” –Lindsay, Nepal
