Volunteers For Peace: Affordable Volunteer Projects Around the World
Through its affiliation with large voluntary service networks, Volunteers For Peace exchanges more than a thousand volunteers each year to help communities meet local needs and work toward the goals of the United Nations Millennium Declaration. All projects arise from a grassroots, community based need and are developed through VFP's partner organizations around the world.
Short-term projects are generally 2 to 3 weeks long and involve being immersed in an international group of volunteers, medium-term projects have a set time frame and last 1 to 3 months, and long-term individual volunteer projects have flexible dates for 1 month up to 1 year. Project themes include: teaching English, environmental, building schools, preserving historical sites, assisting with festivals, organic farming and agriculture, assisting mentally or physically handicapped individuals, working with the elderly, animal conservation, and many more!
Volunteers For Peace (VFP) organizes, promotes and supports voluntary service opportunities in the USA and abroad as an effective means of intercultural education, service learning, and community development.
