The number of volunteer organizations and volunteer programs has increased significantly the past decade. There are thousands of volunteer opportunities and we know how difficult it is for volunteers to select a trustworthy and reliable volunteer organization. 

To take away this uncertainty among volunteers, the organizations offered on the Volunteer World platform are all thoroughly examined before they are published. This is why the quality of volunteer organizations and programs we cooperate with is very high to begin with.  

Volunteer World's green badge of quality

On top of that, Volunteer World awards organizations that have proven to be very reliable on our platform. To indicate this, Volunteer World has developed the green badge of quality. 

This badge symbolizes 

  • Trustworthiness
  • Fairness
  • Reliability
  • High-Quality Communication
