Who Can Volunteer Abroad?

Anyone who signs up with Volunteer Global must meet a few basic requirements to make sure you're safe and that the projects benefit you, your community, and your host group. Volunteers must be:

  • 18 or older.
  • In good health.
  • Physically and mentally capable of taking on the project as defined by the host country organization with whom they'll work.
  • Able to provide proof of health insurance covering the duration of their travels.
  • Able to arrange their own travel expenses and schedule for arriving to and departing from the host country.
  • Willing and able to sign the Legal Volunteer Program Terms And Conditions.

The host country organization with whom volunteers are placed may have additional requirements of their own. Details are available for each organization on their profile page.
