Lattitude is going global – on social!

Posted on the 4th June 2020

Lattitude Global Volunteering has always been a global non-profit organisation, with volunteer programmes in exciting destinations around the world, and a global team dedicated to supporting volunteers from around the world in their international experience. But now we are taking our approach a step further and making our online presence global too! 



Over the last while, Lattitude has had multiple presences online, with websites and social media profile managed by team members in our main volunteer sending countries – the UK, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. We are now moving our content to one merged and united global platform. What this means is bigger, better, and more diverse content to share with you from around the world. You will be able to connect easier, see more from our volunteers, staff, and programmes around the world, and join us as we support young people on their journeys around the globe. No matter where you are in the world, you will more easily find the information and inspiration you need on our merged social media to get your own gap year started.

What’s happened so far?

Lattitude Volunteering on Facebook

On May 27th we merged our Facebook pages into one global page! You may notice that some of our older posts on this page @lattitudevolunteering may appear to be from a specific region and some posts direct you to posts on our New Zealand website. Don’t worry, you are indeed in the right place! Our posts moving forward will reflect our global perspective, so no matter where you are in the world, this page will be relevant to you.

Please make sure to Like our Facebook page @lattitudevolunteering and join us for what’s ahead.

What’s ahead?

Lattitude Volunteering on Instagram

In time we will be merging our Instagram pages into one global page. Our regional accounts still exist and you’ll continue to find us there in the short term. But we’re moving our content over to our global page now and eventually, the regional profiles will be deleted. In order to keep up with what we’re doing, you’ll need to follow our new page @lattitudevolunteering. Trust us, it’ll be worth it!

Please make sure to follow our global Instagram page @lattitudevolunteering to see the most recent content and watch out for special deals.

And we also suggest you follow our hashtag #lattitudevolunteering. We encourage our volunteers and alumni to use this hashtag on their own posts about their Lattitude experiences. Following along will allow you to see some truly authentic posts from around the world.


Lattitude’s four regional pages from the UK, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia will all be combined into one website. This means that no matter where you are in the world, there will be one website that will provide all of the information you need, our online application form, and next steps for getting your gap year journey started.  For now, our regional sites are still up and running. But this change is coming soon! Stay tuned.

What do you need to do?

And while you’re at it, we would love for you to share Lattitude with those around you. Perhaps you know someone who would benefit from an exciting international experience. Perhaps you have a friend with whom you discuss, dream, and imagine future world travels with. Invite them along to follow our pages too! The more the merrier.
