Internships, Volunteering, Active Travel, Working Holidays, Cultural Learning Opportunities Worldwide
World Unite! is an organization that provides Intercultural Exchange and Global Learning opportunities. Since 2007, we have been organising Internships, Volunteering Assignments, Active Travel and Cultural Experiences in various countries.
Our goal is to be the world's most innovative provider of educational and exciting trips abroad, promoting understanding between cultures.
Intercultural Understanding in a globalized world, is a key skill that you can gain through a program participation with World Unite!. This needs not be just in "theory", but through fun experiences. Discover the world with our various activities!
Our aim is to provide high standard of service to our participants and sustainable benefits at the destinations visited, especially in the case of the so-called developing countries.
We work with many Partner Organizations. In addition to the organizations that you volunteer, do an internship or write your thesis with, this also includes global organizations with which we partner in the preparation of our participants and in offering international programs, universities, and of course, infrastructure service providers at your travel destination, such as local tour operators and providers of accommodation.
As providers of infrastructure services, our partnering tour operators share the idea of promoting and conducting socially and environmentally sustainable tourism. They have many years of experience with travellers from Europe, North America and Oceania, and offer personal and warm-hearted service while being conscious about the need of their home country. Most locations employ exclusive World Unite! staff. Almost all of the money you pay will remain in your host country and help generate employment at your host country. At some locations, we work with charitable NGOs as service providers for our participants. In this case, the revenues generated through World Unite! almost completely go to the NGO's projects.
World Unite! Development Projects
Since 2010, we have been increasingly involved into running our own development projects. The aim of these projects is to develop communities through innovative ways of income generation for the local population and to fund social and environmental programs. As our participant, you can also be a part of this. We are registered as non-profit organization "The World Unite for Environment and Social Sustainability (NGO)".
Our "Academix" program is the connection to the academic world. For "Dissertations/Theses abroad", we cooperate worldwide with research institutes and universities; for Intercultural Training, we have a partnership with itim International, the consulting firm of Hofstede Center, Helsinki. We develop Study Tours for universities involving diverse partners. Our psychological Vocational Guidance Test helps in choosing an appropriate professional path and is the most comprehensive and scientifically valid test in the market.

The staff of the World Unite! is distributed over the entire world. A lot of our work is organized in a decentralized way via our team members, directly from the target countries where we operate, and where we run local offices. In addition, we have an office in the United Arab Emirates, due to its good accessibility between Europe, Africa and Asia and thus, reduced travel expenses, and contact offices in Graz/Austria, Essen/Germany and Dresden/Germany.
