Affordable Volunteer Program in Thailand

Project Description: 

International Volunteer HQ’s partner organization in Thailand requires volunteers NOW! IVHQ has a range of volunteering opportunities available in the Chiang Rai province working with local villages and hill tribes. 

IVHQ has volunteer programs located in Chiang Rai in Northern Thailand. Chiang Rai is a great place to volunteer as the weather is nice and the scenery beautiful with green jungles, rice fields, waterfalls, elephants and more. The Northern Thais (both the ethnic Thai and the various hill tribes) are some of the friendliest and most welcoming people in the world. It is very safe and good medical facilities are available. Furthermore, Chiang Rai is easily accessible by air, road and railroad links. 


Placement start dates are the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. Volunteers can choose to volunteer for periods of one week to three months.


Volunteers are housed onsite at our partner organization’s headquarters in Chiang Rai. Volunteers live in a communal environment (males and females have separate lodgings) with other staff and volunteers. The accommodation is well integrated into the environment as the buildings are made of wood and soil. There are three dormitories for female volunteers and interns. You may find yourself sharing with quite a few people, depending on the period. The cob style dorms are for male volunteers, and made of soil, chaff and straw. A feature of the houses are that they are cool in summer and warm in winter.


Program fees are very affordable from USD320 for one week to USD1320 for 12 weeks.
