WWF Young Adult Volunteer Opportunities

You're young, you've got a passion for the planet. All you need is the opportunity.
Since the launch of our WWF Young Adult Volunteer Internship Programme, in 2005, we have evolved considerably and now offer a variety of placements with WWF’s priority conservation programmes in offices around the Globe; in areas such as communications, policy & advocacy, environmental education, project monitoring and field based assignments.

Carefully chosen young people will take hands-on experience, expertise and knowledge into their future professional careers & spheres of influence, spreading a wider understanding of conservation issues and sustainable development, while inputting their skills and experience into WWF teams and projects.

WWF's Mission

To stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and to build a future in which people live in harmony with nature, by:

  • conserving the world's biological diversity
  • ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable
  • promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.

Please Note

New openings will be posted when they become available, including all virtual volunteering opportunities.
