Default Need Help Finidng Summer Work Abroad

So after my first year of college I'll have like an 8 week summer. I really want to get a job/volunteer abroad. Now, I only have 8 weeks, so it can't be a super long term program, but I would like to work outside of the U.S.

Now, I was looking at jobs in Australia, and I could be a harvester and make like $20 and hour, which is good but after a plane ticket it wouldn't end up being very much. I mean that's alright it'd still be a nice experience, but the work wouldn't be all to fulfilling.

Now, I was also looking at jobs in Africa, and there are lots of volunteer programs where you work with wildlife conservation or general conservation. But, you have to pay to be in these volunteer programs which I simply can't afford with college, especially cause they don't fly you over. Now, if it didn't cost to join, and they didn't fly you over, I could stomach that, but I can't afford both. However, paid work would be much better.

I would pretty much go anywhere outside the U.S. (would also like Hawaii inside the U.S.) But I can't find any you don't have to pay to join, besides being a harvester for some farm in Australia.

Any help much appreciated.

It seems like everybody is moving forward. As if there is some final goal they can achieve and get to. I don't get it though. When I look around, it seems like I'm already there, and there is nothing left to do.

I wish I could take just one hour of what I experience out in nature, wrap it in a box, put a bow on it, and start handing out to people

Dunno if what I'm linking here is much help, but a friend of mine recently told me about WWOOFing, and then through that site I discovered workaway.info, where it looks like only your work and household participation is needed in exchange for residence - no other costs. It's really intriguing me, I might participate in it myself later on.

Thanks EmptyGlass, there are a lot of amazing opportunities there. I haven't committed the 22 euros yet, but there are so many great places to stay there. Although I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I can afford to get myself there without being paid once I'm there. But damn, those are some good opportunities.
