Short-Term Quest Fees

About our Quest Fee

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 for 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.

  • Lodging (usually at a local homestay)
  • Home-cooked meals in your host country
  • Language lessons, cultural activities and excursions*
  • Online pre-departure training with our Boston staff
  • In-country airport transportation
