    Volunteers For Peace (VFP) provides affordable cultural exchange and meaningful volunteer work in over 100 countries. Offering more than 3,000 projects, we help individuals and groups plan their short or long-term service adventure overseas or in the US.

    We offer projects in more than 100 countries around the world! You can find most of our projects in Europe, Asia, Africa, Haiti and the USA. We also offer some projects in Central and South America, but international voluntary service is still developing in this region of the world. Most of the projects in this region are MLTV (medium and long-term volunteer) projects. 

    In many projects, volunteers are living and working with others from 5 or more different countries offering a unique cultural experience. Volunteers always pay for and arrange their own transportation. Some projects, especially in developing countries, have additional fees payable on arrival that range from $50-$500.

    Cost and Session Information

    For adult volunteers (ages 18 and up), the registration fee is $500, regardless of the length of your program. Our registration fee is $650 for teens. The registration fee includes the placement process, food, accommodation, leadership, and work materials during the project. Some projects, especially those in developing countries, have an additional fee payable on arrival to help subsidize the cost of the program for our partner organization. Volunteers arrange and pay for their own transportation for the project.
