VFP offers over 3000 projects in more than 100 countries each year. Our grassroots projects arise from the needs of the local community. Most projects are organized through our partner organization in another country. Our partner then works with non-profits, non-governmental organizations, or environmental and community groups within local communities. Most of our projects, about 80%, are short-term (2-3 weeks) and occur between May and September. There are also medium-term projects (1-3 months) and permanent projects, offered all year with a minimum service of 2 weeks or 1 month depending on the project.


With over 3,000 projects offered all over the world, Volunteers For Peace has MANY diverse options for you to choose from. Whether you already have a set of skills you’d like to further develop or if you’d like to explore a new area of interest, we can help you find the type of volunteer program abroad you’re looking for!

Some of our most popular project types include:

  • Working with Kids,
  • Environmental & Agricultural,
  • Working with Animals
