If you’ve never volunteered in an overseas exchange before, we understand that it may seem contradictory to pay for a volunteer position. We ask for a small fee from you that will go directly to the community where you will be working. We believe it is fair to compensate the families, placements and hosts who help you during your time spent volunteering. You also contribute to our funds for several causes as well as your accommodation, materials, transport, and development of this volunteer program.
When taking into account a typical daily budget while traveling or living in your home country, we think you will find the fee you pay during your stay to be very reasonable.
