What is the term of volunteer project?

From 2 weeks to 6 months. The term of visit depends on a certain program and the visa terms.

 

How to get a visa?

Volunteers get their visas on their own. We send a list of documents needed for a visa alongside with the volunteer program confirmation. Usually you can get a visa with no problem but it depends on the accuracy of documents that you provide and on your personal visa history (either you’ve got Schengen visas, or have violated the visa regime, etc.)

If you need help with getting a visa, we can give references to the reliable company to your assistance.

But if you want to make it even easier you can choose a country with no visa entry. You can choose one from the list here – there are many of them!

 

Do you help to purchase the tickets?

We will advise you on the tickets purchase – the cheapest and the most convenient tickets to your destination, but you are in charge of purchasing your tickets.

 

Can I go to a volunteer project with my partner?

Yes, you can! Although, it is not possible with every project. Each project has a detailed description with this information included. Or check with us.

 

What age groups can take part in a volunteer project?

Anybody from the age of 18 can become a volunteer :-) If some special requirements appear you can learn about them in the project description.

 

Is it necessary to speak any foreign language to participate in a volunteer project?

Yes, it is absolutely necessary for any volunteer project abroad to be able to communicate in English effectively. For some projects it can be necessary to be fluent in English, for some other – to speak some other foreign language. This kind of requirements can be found on the page of every volunteer program.
