Volunteer World's Benefits
Our aim at Volunteer World is to create an easy and safe way for volunteers to communicate with and apply to social projects worldwide. Our platform allows you to compare hundreds of programs by location, interest and budget, as some social projects may charge fees for board and lodging. As a result we significantly simplify the search and the application process for you.
Easy and transparent process
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 organisation).
Our quality assurance process assures that our partner organisations 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.
Our Resolution Support is there to help you with any problems before and during your journey.
Our Flex Option offers you the possibility to use your paid deposit for a different program if you want or need to switch it.
Our Refund Guarantee ensures that you get your money back in case of a cancellation by the organisation.
