What are you waiting for?
It's time for an adventure
A simple 5-minute application process
You have spent hours on our website comparing our programmes and have finally decided on your perfect choice! With so many destinations and projects, that’s the hard bit done!
As we do not like to make promises or commitments that we cannot guarantee, we have an application process when applying for any of our programmes. When submitting your application, we do not take any money up-front and you do not have to commit to volunteering.
There is nothing worse than paying your deposit, getting very excited to then be told there is no availability for your chosen dates!
Unlike most organisations, there are no hassling sales pitches or telephone interviews. We welcome everyone that is happy to bring a can do attitude, willing to work hard and contribute lots of positive energy.
The application stage is fairly easy and straightforward. Simply navigate to the programme you wish to apply for and click the “Apply Now” button. Here, we gather some basic information about you and when you wish to go on your once in a lifetime trip.
We like to get to know as much about you as possible so we can personalise your trip. Although not mandatory, we ask that you provide detailed answers for the questions that we do ask. These include what you are hoping to gain from volunteering and if you have any relevant experience that may help.
Once you have confirmed that all of your details are correct, all that’s left to do is click submit! Although it may feel slightly daunting to some, it will be the best thing you ever do – guaranteed!
You should receive a confirmation email within 30 minutes of submitting your application, although this is generally instant! If you fail to receive this email, please contact us.
All applications are processed within 48 hours, even over the weekend! You will receive an email letting you know if your chosen dates are available along with information on the next steps. Upon receiving this email, you then have 7 days to confirm your place by paying the £149 registration fee.
Once you have confirmed your placement, we will be in contact shortly after to send you your volunteering handbook, programme guide and any travel recommendations. These comprehensive guides will provide you with all of the information you need to know, but we are of course on hand to answer any questions you may still have.
So, what are you waiting for? Apply today and see the world, make amazing new friends and create unforgettable memories.
- When should I apply? You can apply for any of our programmes at anytime. However, we advise all volunteers to apply as soon as possible to ensure you have the best chances of securing your placement on your selected dates. Generally speaking, you need to book at least 60 days before your programme start date, although we are more than happy to help with last minute trips – please contact us.
- Can I apply for multiple destinations? Yes of course. If you are wanting to join us in multiple countries, you have two options when applying. The easiest and most convenient way is to put the additional destinations, along with your start dates and durations, within the “Special requirements’ box during your application. We can then add these on for you and confirm all placements via email. If you prefer, you can submit an application for each destination. Please note, the registration fee applies to each destination you join us in.
- Can we apply as a group? Yes of course. On the first step of the application, simply select the amount of people wishing to apply for the programme. Please ensure you put each additional volunteers name within the “Special requirements” box.
