Volunteer World's Benefits

Your advantages

Our goal at Volunteer World is to make volunteering abroad simple and secure. Our platform allows you to find the perfect program, send your application, and book your stay very easily. But that's not all: it is of utmost importance for us to ensure your safety while volunteering and to provide you with all the necessary services to make this trip an extraordinary experience.

Easy and transparent process

Do you have a dream destination? A specific cause for which you wish to act? There is a good chance that you will find the volunteer program of your dreams as the options are so numerous and varied on our site. To simplify your task, you can easily search and compare according to your preferences (destination, field, budget, ...).

We make sure that everything we do is designed to make each and every application as easy as possible. Our platform makes it easy to find and compare volunteer programs. Furthermore, our platform creates transparency by providing volunteers with detailed information about the programs and a breakdown of the fees (if charged by the organization). This means, NO hidden fees.

Quality assurance

Our quality assurance process guarantees that our partner organizations around the world, as well as their programs, only get featured on Volunteer World if they meet our platform standards. Furthermore, we handle feedback from former volunteers very seriously. If a former volunteer reports a problem with a program we carefully check it and do not longer feature it on our website if necessary.


It is part of our mission to provide volunteers with all the information they need to be prepared for their volunteering experience. Having realistic expectations and being well informed about what volunteering actually means is important to make it a mutually beneficial and responsible activity.
