Sobre Nós

Volunteers For Peace (VFP) is a nonprofit organization, founded in 1982, that offers placement in nearly 3000 voluntary service projects in more than 90 countries. Each year we provide almost 1,000 volunteers with invaluable opportunities to strengthen their ability to communicate in diverse groups, explore grassroots leadership opportunities, and build cultural understanding and connections around the world.

VFP offers international projects ranging from 2-3 weeks up to 2-3 months for adults, teens, seniors, families and groups. All projects arise from a grassroots, community-based need. Volunteers should be prepared to work about 5 to 6 hours a day and self-select the type of work that interests them. Work ranges from environmental to teaching English, building schools to preserving historical sites, assisting with festivals to agriculture, animal conservation to working with mentally handicapped individuals, and so much more!

  • Short-Term Projects (Also known as Workcamps) where volunteers from 4 or more countries come together for 2-3 week service project.
  • Individual Service Adventures & Gap Year Projects (Also known as Medium Term or Permanent Projects) involve working with VFP to create a personalized international volunteer adventure lasting up to 2-3 months per location placement.

We are happy to work with university, community, family or other groups to create a customized project for you!

VFP's placement fee is always $500 ($650 if you are under 18 years old) and must be paid at the time of registration. (If we can't place you we refund the full fee!) Your registration covers placement, food, accommodation and work materials for your program. Volunteers arrange and pay for their own transportation to and from the project. Projects taking place in the developing world often require an additional fee in the range of $50-$400 payable to our partners upon arrival.
