The number of volunteer organizations and volunteer programs has increased significantly in the past decade. What makes us happy about this, is that we have the opportunity to make more organizations visible and to give a chance to new organizations that want to make a difference. Of course, quality, reliability, and high ethical standards remain our priority. 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 gold 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 gold badge of quality.
This badge symbolizes
Meeting all criteria of the green badge of quality
Trustworthiness: based on a proven track record of over 5 years
Fairness: proactive in their support to volunteers and react promptly to any situation that requires their help
High Reliability: show an active motivation to satisfy the volunteers and keep our team up-to-date about any changes in their programs and outstanding additional activities.
Highest-Quality Communication: excellent observed response rate and pace towards the volunteers as well as our team
Please note that social projects and volunteer programs without our gold badge of quality are also excellent choices to volunteer with. All social projects have already fulfilled the criteria to receive the gray badge of quality or the green badge of quality.
