Program History:

Oyster was set up in 1999 by Roger after leading many years of army and school expeditions. We now have over 50 projects set up in 16 different countries including animal welfare, conservation, teaching and childcare, and internships all with dedicated destination managers. Many of these projects have been running since 2000 and have been nurtured and supported by us ever since.

Being small means we can offer a really personal service. We get to know all of our participants individually at an informal interview and briefing sessions either at our office in the South of England or over the phone. Participants are fully briefed on health, safety and cultural issues in their chosen country.
