Volunteering abroad is an amazing learning experience and journey that will change your life. However, many volunteers ask us, why should I have to pay to volunteer? The answer is: Because we want you to succeed. That means having in place the support our volunteers need. We don’t just drop you in-country and hope for the best. We provide training before you leave … language exposure … 24/7 in-country support … support from your host family … accommodations, meals and airport transportation … activities and excursions. The whole idea is to make the experience successful and productive for you and the host community, and we have found that these things are crucial. Remember that we are a non-profit, mission-driven organization – we wouldn’t spend money on something that wasn’t important.
Volunteering abroad is one of the most fulfilling experiences that you can have in your life. That being said, we know that raising the necessary funds to volunteer abroad can be daunting. With this in mind, we’ve researched and put together a list of scholarships and grants that you may be eligible to apply for.
