Volunteer Project Fees
You don’t need to spend thousands to participate in credible, worthwhile & life changing volunteer abroad programs. It shouldn’t cost that much! IVI is a non profit org dedicated to volunteer missions in overseas countries for over 30 years.
While we encourage long term volunteering we recognise the need for purposeful short term travel experiences. Our programs are designed in weekly or fortnightly allotments, enabling mix and match style itineraries where you can spread your help further and gain even more new experiences! We charge only a one off application fee per volunteer (not per placement). This covers you for as many programs or countries of your choosing within a 12 week period.
We offer long term, standard and specialty placements. Standard placements are extremely varied but generally do not require any specialist qualifications, however specific skills are always encouraged. The majority of our projects do not require previous experience, just a willingness to get stuck in and learn!
We believe our programs represent incredible value. Specialty placements are unique opportunities involving either specialist skills or qualifications or programs which involve higher costs due to the nature of the experience. It’s possible to mix and match, specialty placements with standard placements.
The placement fees cover the essential costs involved in ensuring volunteers receive a quality and safe volunteer experience with meals, accommodation and transportation always included.
*Note that IVI have access to many additional long term opportunities not listed on this website. For any queries go to the contact us page to submit a request.
