About Our Host Country Partners

About Volunteer Global · Our Team · Bloggers · Contact Us

Volunteer Global's direct volunteer placement program was launched in July 2012. The organizations outlined below are part of this pilot program, with official partnerships to be developed with each in late 2012. We chose these groups because we believe their programs are sustainable, they benefit their host communities, and they are supplementing, not supplanting, local work.

As part of the partnership development process, we ask our first groups of volunteers to provide feedback and ideas for how we can provide the most rewarding experience in cooperation with these amazing pilot partner organizations. Read on to learn more!
