IVHQ has developed a reputation as the world leader in affordable volunteer travel, with thousands of volunteers traveling with us every year. By working directly with local organizations in the countries where our programs are based, we are able to keep our fees low and ensure these go towards meaningful community projects and local employment.
Volunteer abroad in over 35 destinations with International Volunteer HQ, the world’s leading volunteer travel organization - trusted by over 70,000 volunteers. With volunteer programs starting from just US$180 for 1 week, you won’t find a more affordable and trustworthy organization for impactful volunteer vacations.
You can volunteer overseas with IVHQ for durations ranging from 1 week to 24 weeks, with volunteer abroad programs available in Africa, Asia, Central America, South America, Europe and the Pacific.
From your first point of contact with IVHQ until the time you finish your volunteer program, you will receive dedicated support and service from us. Once you become a registered IVHQ volunteer, you will gain instant access to a number of value-add features within your My IVHQ account to help you prepare for your trip. These features include interactive volunteer training, information booklets and checklists that help you to remember key things you need to do before you leave home. Your IVHQ Program Manager is directly responsible for making your program arrangements and helping you to prepare for your experience. Once you reach your program destination, our local team will become your main point of contact until the day you depart your program. While your IVHQ Program Manager becomes a secondary layer of support at this stage, we will remain in touch with you via email and will be accessible should you require any assistance. Once you’ve completed your volunteer program, we’ll get back in touch to hear how you got on, and to say a big “thank you”!
