International Voluntary Service Exchange
Founded in 1982, Volunteers For Peace is a non-profit membership organization that offers placement in over 3000 volunteer projects in more than 100 countries

VFP also organizes 50-60 service projects in the United States each year. We exchange volunteers with our international partners, who organize the projects taking place in their own countries.

Educational and Fun
Volunteer projects bring people from four or more countries together in a cooperative effort to live, work and have fun. Volunteers leave the project with a strong sense of achievement, creating friendships that overcome cultural differences.

Short-Term Placements
We specialize in 2-3 week placements, but also offer medium and long term placements. We offer projects for teens, adults, seniors and families. There are a wide variety of volunteer service projects available that arise from a grassroots level. From sustainable agriculture to environmental protection, helping the elderly and orphans, to preserving archaeological sites.

VFP's basic fee is $300 for a multi-week placement. This includes food, accommodation and work materials. Volunteers arrange and pay for their own transportation. In developing countries, there are additional fees payable upon arrival that vary depending on the hosting organization. We offer a refund of $50 in most situations where volunteers have to pay an extra fee. Read more

We invite you to contact us if you have any feedback on our services, or if you would like to find out more.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain
