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 £129 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.
