Projects in Community Development with Frontier

Community development projects offer volunteers the opportunity to make a real and lasting difference to those that need it most. Working with marginalised communities in various locations around the world, Frontier volunteers will not only contribute towards a more secure future for these people, but also see themselves become a part of the community itself.

What does community development mean?

The nature of community development work means that there are almost endless areas where your help could be required. Despite a need to be open to this varied workload, you will be encouraged to use your own expertise and experience where possible.

Your efforts could be needed in anything from carrying out important building or repair work on community buildings such as schools, to the construction of furniture to maximise the benefits of these centres. Elsewhere you could be involved in developing a community’s infrastructure, such as waste disposal or water access, which may contribute to continued improvements in community health.

A community development project aims to make improvements to important services and facilities that will secure the long-term health and development of its people. Your involvement will not only be a huge benefit to the community, it is also likely to have a significant effect on your perspective and appreciation of life.

Where could community development take you?

Joining a community development project is an incredible opportunity not only to contribute to something worthwhile, but also a chance to immerse yourself in the culture and society of a country or region that has always interested you.

A project in the Americas will appeal to many people, with the rich history of Incan and Mayan civilisations still very much visible in the countless awe-inspiring ruins dotted around. Working to help isolated and impoverished communities is a very worthy way to experience and understand this incredible region.

The many ancient tribal communities and traditions of Africa make it a truly remarkable location to dedicate yourself to a community development project with Frontier. You will be welcomed into community life by friendly local families, who you will work with towards improvements to their everyday lives.

Involving yourself in a community development project in Asia gives you the chance to experience much more than the beautiful and vibrant environment you will undoubtedly find here. You will get to see first-hand the difficulties faced by many communities all over the region, and benefit them and yourselves in the process. You are sure to come away with a lifelong appreciation for wherever it is you decide to go.
