Every year, VFP offers almost 1,000 volunteers invaluable opportunities to explore grassroots leadership opportunities, strengthen their ability to communicate in diverse groups, and build cultural understanding and connections around the world. These important lifelong skills contribute to developing effective leaders for the future.

With over 3000 projects to choose from in more than 100 countries around the world, Volunteers For Peace has a project just right for everyone. Participants can volunteer with kids, teach English, restore the environment, assist with social projects such as HIV/AIDS awareness, and more!

We offer the most affordable way to travel and see the world. Our registration fee is always $500, regardless of the length of the program. This covers food, accommodation and work materials for the duration of your project. Volunteers pay for and arrange their own transportation and some projects require additional fees payable on arrival.
