Free Volunteer Opportunities

Many Matadorians have the ambition to volunteer at home or abroad but are held back by the high costs that some nonprofit organizations charge their volunteers for the opportunity to give back.

That’s why we’ve put together resources that introduce you to low-cost and no-cost volunteer opportunities around the world, from joining the Peace Corps, to teaching English, to saving endangered sea turtles.

In the Matador community, you can connect directly with both organizations and individual volunteers to learn more about what’s out there.
