Frequently Asked Questions
Can you help me volunteer abroad?
We're sorry, IAVE is not a volunteer placement or matching organization. Try www.worldvolunteerweb.org for volunteer opportunities.
I already found a volunteering placement, but I want to know if the organization is legitimate?
IAVE does not endorse volunteer involving organizations. All we can tell you is whether the organization is a member of IAVE. To check if the organization is legally registered in its home country we advise you contact the relevant national volunteer centre.
