About Program

Volunteers For Peace, a Vermont-based nonprofit organization, has offered international volunteer opportunities for over 30 years. You choose from nearly 3,000 projects in over 90 countries. Each year, almost 1,000 volunteers engage in these projects to explore a new place, strengthen communication and leadership skills, and build cultural understanding and connections around the world.

You choose the project you want to do, where you want to go, and when you will travel. Choose from a variety of projects from 1 week up to 1 year. Short-term projects are generally 2 to 3 weeks long and involve being immersed in an international group of volunteers, medium-term projects have a set time frame and last 1 to 3 months, and long-term individual volunteer projects have flexible dates for 1 month up to 1 year. Projects include: teaching English, environmental work, building schools, preserving historical sites, sea turtle conservation, and many more!

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.

Yes, I recommend this program

Go! Travel! Serve!

I seriously don't know why you wouldn't go on a trip to Mexico through Volunteers for Peace! This was a life changing and eye opening experience for me. I met a ton of like minded individuals from Meixco and all over the world. I believe it is very important for US citizens especially to see the beauty of the people and culture of Mexico. HIGHLY recommended! <3

What would you improve about this program?
I wish I could have done more service...the cultural aspect and immersion was on point.
