We are particularly excited to be promoting 2 opportunities to volunteer in Nicaragua this holiday season! Click the links below to learn more about these unique opportunities that are all inclusive and organized directly by VFP! 

  • Spend Thanksgiving in Nicaragua and help to renovate the local school, Escuela "La Chispa." There will be chances to work with the children at the school and teach or volunteer with other activities. 
  • Travel to Nicaragua for New Year's and assist local pickers in the harvest of organic coffee. Volunteers will also have the option to teach at the local school, "Escuela "La Chispa", or do other volunteer activities.

  • Affordable! Registration fee is only $500, $650 if you are under 18.

    Launch your future! Increased global consciousness, enhanced communication and leadership skills, and real world experience will look great on a resume and help you build your future as a global citizen.

    Experience something new! You pick the project. Popular themes include environment, children, agriculture, festivals, education, renovation and more.

    Customize your trip! Volunteer in an international group for 2-3 weeks or plan an independent adventure for up to a year. We also organize custom projects for student, community and other groups.

    Make global connections! Form lifelong friendships, connect with grassroots organizations, and network internationally.

    VFP was founded in 1982 and has exchanged over 31,000 volunteers worldwide!

    From the field...

    "It was so fun and rewarding to work alongside other volunteers from around the world in a beautiful country that takes such pride in caring for the environment and local communities. Our only regret was that we did not arrange to stay longer. We appreciate everything that your organization does and look forward to volunteering abroad with VFP in the future."
