United Planet is an international non-profit organization based in Boston, MA with a mission to enhance cross-cultural understanding while addressing shared challenges to create a community beyond borders, one relationship at a time. We connect volunteers who want to make a difference with communities in more than 25 countries, where they learn, teach, work, engage and immerse themselves in an mutual exchange. For many, it’s the most fulfilling experience of their lives.
United Planet's programs are designed to be immersive, authentic, and comprehensive. The program elements encourage full engagement with a new culture, forging strong relationships and new challenges. We partner with the communities we work with to ensure the experience is important, relevant and impactful.
