Applying for the Volunteer Abroad programme is a straight forward process: after receiving your application and CV we will contact you to find out more about your interests and motivation for wanting to be a volunteer. We will confirm your availability for our pre-departure workshop and then send your information to our staff in the country of your choice and they organise your placement. The earlier you apply, the more time we have to find the most suitable project for you.
There are 3 steps to the application process
- Step 1: Application form
- Step 2: Interview
- Step 3: Formal Acceptance within 10 days of consultation
We will then support you in terms of paperwork, visas, vaccinations and advice for flights as you prepare for your trip.
