Council on International Educational Exchange: International Volunteer Projects
http://us.councilexchanges.org/opportunities/ivp/index.html
CIEE's International Volunteer Projects are designed as short-term volunteer experiences that make it easy for nearly everyone to get out there and make a difference in the world (minimum age: 18). With so many projects and countries to choose from, the possibilities for designing your own personalized international experience are endless. 

International Partnership for Service-Learning
http://www.ipsl.org/
IPS-L programs, offered in 14 countries, unite academic study and volunteer service, giving students a fully integrated study abroad experience.  The service enlivens the formal learning, and the learning informs the service. Both students and the host communities benefit from the substantial service each student gives. By studying at a local university and serving 15-20 hours per week in a school, orphanage, health clinic or other agency addressing human needs, students find their knowledge of the host culture--and of themselves-- take on greater depth and meaning.

Worldwide Volunteering for Young People
http://www.worldwidevolunteering.org.uk/
Over 800 organisations already promote their volunteer placements through the WWVol database, bringing their activities to the notice of many more potential volunteers. We concentrate on full-time placements lasting anything from one week to a year or more. We do not include very short term or occasional opportunities, details of which are best accessed by local information providers. All our organisations have opportunities for 16 - 25 year olds though most also have placements for older or younger volunteers.
