I think Youth Challenge International is right up your ally. I think it is a Canadian group but it is open to everyone.

From ages 18-30 so you are right there. Check it out!

Well if you are european, and you want to do volunteerwork somewhere in europe or even some other countries like egypt...you should check out EVS ( european volunteering service) I did it myself a year ago, worked and stayed half a year in France...the cool thing about this program is that the european union pays for everything...food, lodging, travelling expenses, languages courses...and you even get money every month to spent on what you want...but than again you work as a volunteer so you don`t get paid...
