Volunteer in Indonesia - United Planet - 6 or 12 Months

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Participate in a long-term program in Indonesia and experience the world's largest archipelago state. Located in Southeast Asia, Indonesia serves an important role as a trade region. However, once declaring independence after World War II, Indonesia has experienced challenges due to natural disasters, periods of economic change, separatism, and corruption. Indonesia's climate is defined by two monsoon seasons (dry and rainy) making it generally warm except in the mountains. Volunteers who experience Indonesia are intrigued by the amazing rock formations, hot springs, and exotic animals.

United Planet serves as the US and Canada member of ICYE or the International Cultural Youth Exchange Federation. Volunteers in Indonesia are hosted by Dejavato, the Indonesia member of ICYE. With the goal of promoting social welfare and education, Dejavato's work focuses on providing for individuals throughout the surrounding communities.


Volunteers have the opportunity to participate in programs related to Children and Education and Environmental Sustainability. The Children and Education programs include working with the disabled or elderly, assisting in cultural community centers, and working with rural children on their development and education. The Environmental Sustainability programs include assisting with elephant conservation projects and participating in forest community development.


Volunteers must be U.S. or Canadian residents and at least 18 years of age.
