About

Volunteers For Peace is a non-profit organization, founded in 1982, that offers placement in over 3,000 voluntary service projects in more than 100 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 service projects that arise from a grassroots, community based need for adults, teens, seniors, families and groups. Volunteers can choose between Short-Term Projects (Also known as Workcamps) where volunteers from 4 or more countries come together for a 2-3 week service project, or Individual Service Adventures & Gap Year Projects (Also known as Medium Term or Permanent Projects) involve working with VFP to create a personalized 2-week to 1-year experience.

Questions & Answers

Hi Susan, The cost really depends on where you want to volunteer and where you live because the largest expense is the flight which you must arrange and pay for. VFP's registration fee is $500 per project. In Sweden that is the only fee you will pay and when you arrive you will have your meals, accommodation, leadership, and work materials provided. Hope this helps. Meg, VFP
