A great deal of time and energy goes towards ensuring your trip is well-organized, safe and secure. We monitor the political and social situation, health risks and anything else that could impact your experience. Each trip is led by trained project leaders who support your group from the planning stages through to the end of your trip. Team leaders are trained and certified in first-aid and all are experienced past participants who possess a comprehensive understanding of the volunteers’ needs.
Many volunteers are traveling to a new destination, possibly to a place where their first language is not well spoken. Some travel with a friend, others alone. A volunteer program provider should provide their volunteers with support and guidance. If something does go wrong while overseas, be it medical, logistical or even a problem with the project itself, they should be there to help you and physically assist if required.
With over a decade of experience, World Volunteer has had our fair share of experiences that have helped shape us into a legitimate, safe and secure organisation. We believe it’s important that you make an informed choice about who you choose to volunteer with based on the type of experience you wish to have.
