UNIVERSITY GROUPS

Kaya offers a range of placements for university groups matching the needs of a particular faculty, for study abroad or general service that can be used for the personal development of a student or for academic credit.

University Groups Projects abroad in Asia, Africa and Latin America

At Kaya we are able to help arrange volunteer abroad program for University Groups, and customize it to meet the specific needs and goals of your group. Students and faculty can benefit from the customized itineraries that Kaya are able to arrange which can be tailored to specific coursework or university departments. We can provide sample itineraries, and budgets for customized programs, and help tailor your experience abroad.   We handle all the details on the ground to help provide a safe and reliable program in which volunteers make positive impacts.  

Since the employment market today is a competitive one, many employers are reaching beyond traditional experiences and looking for employees with a global mindset. By volunteering on a project related to your studies this can help to make you stand out during the hiring process  and make you an accomplished and prepared potential employee.  And don’t forget that the general skills and experience that you can bring to a project are invaluable and often times are passed on to the project team and community, contributing to their futures and ongoing progress.

Many of Kaya’s projects are relatable to specific interests and areas of study. We offer medical projects, projects focused on social welfare, marine and wildlife conservation and a range of sustainable community development and building projects. In the past we have had university groups focus their program on their coursework, dissertation or thesis, all while combining travel and priceless cultural immersion and learning opportunities.  

Most of the projects Kaya offer are able to cater to university groups and  for most groups we create tailor-made itineraries which can accommodate a group’s individual needs. We work closely with all our groups and pay special attention to all arrangements that are made and utilize our local team on the ground to help provide a meaningful program that meets the needs of all the group. In addition, all of our projects are responsible and promote a manner in which seeing the world respects local people, culture and environment and provides benefits to the local communities.

Volunteering with your university group is a way to further your cultural and global understanding as well as flexibility, leadership and communication skills. It can be beneficial to all students, from first years to seniors and can be tailored to suit the needs of all majors and areas of study.


If you are interested in finding out which project would be best suited for your group then please contact one of our experience advisors – we are happy to help customize the best program for you!  At Kaya we believe that volunteering abroad is a life changing and experience and more importantly can be done so that the wellbeing, development, empowerment and sustainability of our projects create global citizen through responsible travel.
