International Volunteer HQ/Volunteer of the Year Scholarship

We make safe, quality and responsible international volunteer travel genuinely affordable Our volunteers provide assistance to the achievement of long term community goals in countries all over the world Our programs grow cross-cultural awareness and understanding, and foster global citizenship We provide cultural immersion experiences, achieved by living and working with local people, communities, organizations and families International Volunteer HQ provides affordable volunteer programs by partnering with organizations based in each of our program countries. We believe this is the best approach to international volunteering because: Local organizations are in the best position to see where volunteers are genuinely needed. The staff in these organizations are locals, they have been raised in the area and know it inside and out. They can speak the local language, they know the local people and are in the best position to provide guidance, advice, supervision and support to volunteers. Partnering with local organizations reduces the costs associated with hosting volunteers, making programs more affordable. This means more people are enabled to volunteer and that enables greater social outcomes to be achieved. One of the major strengths of IVHQ is our careful selection process in choosing our partner organizations and the high quality volunteer programs that we offer through these partners. Every program that IVHQ offers has been personally inspected by IVHQ. We have experienced the programs first-hand, we have assessed the local teams and we have provided comprehensive IVHQ training to all of our local teams.
