Why not give your family holiday this year a truly rewarding purpose? There is no better way than volunteering to immerse your children in culture and give them a real opportunity to see how other people live. Not only that, but this unique shared experience will see you bond and work together as a family to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Volunteering is great way for the whole family to help local communities, from anywhere between 1 week and 6 months, whilst also enjoying quality time together on this incredible learning opportunity.

Rest assured, we only offer family volunteering placements where it is suitable for families, young people and the project.

Volunteer With Children From 5 Years Old

Often we go through our daily lives unaware of the experiences of those in other

countries, this is true just as much for children as for adults, who simply don’t always realise that there are young people their age who don’t get to go to school, or who can’t read yet. So we offer volunteering from ages 5+.

Accompanied Age

Where our programmes are suitable for families we provide an ‘accompanied age’ icon. This can be found at the top of each programme page, just look for the two little green people. The age listed here will be the minimum age that a person can be when volunteering with a family member over the age of 18.

Under 13 Discounts

We are pleased to be able to offer a £50 discount (per child) on all volunteers under the age of 13 years old. This discount will not be shown when applying, but instead confirmed after we have processed your application.

From start to finish Chris and the guys at The Mighty Roar were amazing. Always fast to respond to my 100 or so questions and they organised everything we needed while in Sri Lanka. Our 6 and 9 year old children had the best time ever releasing turtles and playing with the children at the orphanage – would highly recommend.


I volunteered in Bali with my 12 year old daughter who was really interested in the sea and marine life. We had our own private room that was just like a hotel and the local team were so helpful and knowledgeable. The Mighty Roar provided everything I needed to prepare myself and made my trip so easy.

My family and I volunteered in Sri Lanka for two weeks helping with the sea turtles. All 4 children (all different ages) were able to get fully involved and everyday they were excited to go back. We had our own small house within the accommodation that had it’s own modern en-suite and a kitchen – could not have asked for more.


From the moment we landed in Zimbabwe I knew we had chose the right programme! The magnificent views, the luxurious accommodation and being able to get so close to the magnificent animals made my time out of this world that I would recommend to everyone.
