Are you working on summer plans?

Traveling can be expensive, especially when you could be spending the summer working. But college students shouldn’t rule out the possibility. There are ways to earn money as you travel, so you can have the best of both worlds.

Here are some ideas.

Speak English! 

Diverbo is looking for English speakers to interact with vacationers from Spain and Germany so they can practice their skills.

Work on a farm. 

You can travel and learn about the culture of your host country by working on an organic farm. Using WWOOF, you can find farmers that need help in exchange for a home, food and time off to see the sites.


Use Workaway to help you find ads for people looking for volunteers for a lot of different projects. Depending on the project, you could be work with kids at school or build homes.

House sit. 

Use your skills as a house sitter to spend time abroad. Check out Trusted Housesitters for ways to connect.
