Although we take the major legwork out of sorting your volunteer placement, there are still things that you will need to ensure are completed. Luckily, we've got our team in the UK who can talk you through every step.
Once you get confirmation of your place on the project, it's all systems go! The following is a list of things you need to supply or sort, and our team can help you with each:
Copy of Passport
A standard requirement for all organisations to ensure your identity.
A CV allows us a bit of an insight into your background and to see how you could best contribute to each project.
Letter of Motivation
Volunteering is about helping others. Although it will be an incredible, once in a lifetime trip, it is very different from a holiday or tour, so it is super important to us that all our volunteers are contributing for the right reasons and have the right expectations about what they'll get out of it.
Criminal Background Check
As we work to various guidelines set out by different governing bodies, we ensure that all our volunteers have a recent (within 3 months of departure) criminal background check. The safety of the projects, it's community, the staff and other volunteers are of the upmost importance to us, and as such we require this background check.
Most countries require you to have travel insurance as a visa requirement, so this is something which is essential, as well as an important tool to keep you secure whilst you're away.
Although you will have to sort your own flights, we can suggest the best routes, when to arrive and the cheapest possible options for where you want to go.
