Our mission is to help match motivated, qualified volunteers with responsible, community-based programs in need.
If your organization could benefit from general or specific volunteer assistance, and is capable of providing a safe, structured, and supportive environment for them to work and live in, you're in the right place!
Our partnerships begin with organization registration. To register simply click "Log In" and select "Create new account". Ensure you select "Organization" as the account type. Once your account request is approved you will be able to create your profile, add your organization information, and immediately be listed in our directory.
You will also have access to begin the application for direct partnership and/or subscribe for Travel Buddy Connect.
There are two ways to receive volunteer referrals, and they can both be used if you wish.
1. Subscribe for $9/month or $90/year so volunteers can contact you directly with your Travel Buddy Connect information.
As the organization pays a subscription fee in this case, volunteers can contact you directly so there are no additional charges from us.
The subscription fee is necessary for organizations desiring the direct options as it still allows us to collect enough for our operational costs.
2. Apply for direct partnership. If approved by our board you will be able to post specific programs and positions for free.
An additional total charge of 18% is added to all programs.
This consists of a 3% mandatory transfer fee and 15% optional support amount.
The 3% added for the average charges of transferring the volunteer's program fee to the partner is mandatory. The volunteer may elect to pay a different additional amount.
These percentage fees are WELL below industry standards, allowing for much more affordable, direct connection and placement volunteer experiences. And they are used entirely for operational costs to allow us to maintain Volunteer Global and continue to support its services.
Volunteer inquiries received through our program listings are sent to you via our volunteer support coordinator.
Our Travel Buddy Connect program is an optional subscription service that allows several options for volunteers to contact your organization directly. Details are available via the provided link.
Travel Buddy Connect subscription is separate from and in addition to organization registration and/or direct partnership. It will not affect your basic profile or listed programs.
For an annual rate as low as US $90, we do highly recommend and encourage our partner organizations to consider this option as it is just one more way to assist us with website and server costs, and providing compensation for the time and hard work of our volunteer staff.
All of us at Volunteer Global greatly appreciate any contributions you're able to provide to help support and continue making our services available to everyone.
Direct partnership will allow your organization to post specific programs on our site, as an extension of your profile and searchable by several criteria. To apply, you will need to:
Complete and submit the Partnership Questionnaire.
Submit a Sample Program.
Sign and submit the Partnership Agreement.
Confirm details for disbursement of volunteer program fees upon successful registration for your programs.
These forms are all available via the right-hand user menu when logged in. Your application status can also be checked at any time by clicking "Application".
Once all of your information is complete, your organization will be submtited to our board for approval. This process usually takes between 1-3 weeks, after which you will be notified that you have either been approved, that additional information/clarification is needed, or that your organization doesn't meet the criteria for direct partnership at this time.
For questions, comments, suggestions, etc. please feel free to Contact Us. We would love to hear from you and always appreciate your valuable feedback.
Thank you for your interest in Volunteer Global, and we look forward to volunteering with you!! Best,
- The Volunteer Global Partner and Program Development teams
