Host a Project

Volunteers For Peace has been organizing international voluntary service projects in the USA since 1982!

Each year we organize over 40 projects with non-profits, community organizations, parks and recreation departments, and others. In 2010, international volunteers participating in our US projects donated over 23,000 hours of service to local organizations!

Let us know if you would like more information about hosting a project in your area.

"VFP volunteers, pictured working to remove invasive species, have provided thousands of hours of community service to us and have allowed us to develop our parks and accomplish goals that simply would not have been possible without them.” Geoff Beyer ~ Montpelier Parks 2010
