In addition to individual volunteer projects, International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) also specializes in group volunteer abroad programs across Africa, Asia, Central America and South America.
Every year, IVHQ places between 200 and 400 volunteers on customized group programs. We can cater for a range of groups sizes from 10 and up (there are no size restrictions), and smaller groups (less than 10) can also enquire to volunteer together.
We have worked with a variety of different groups and can arrange university volunteer projects, high-school volunteer projects, college volunteer projects, corporate volunteer projects, church volunteer projects, and projects for large groups of friends. If you have a group and wish to volunteer abroad - IVHQ is the organization to volunteer abroad with!
Read feedback from past IVHQ volunteer groups on our IVHQ Groups Reviews page.
"Over the past 3 years, Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar has worked with IVHQ to arrange group programs for our students each year. Our students find their own preferred overseas locations and propose these to us for review and advise; so far our annual student groups have volunteered in South Africa, Morocco and Thailand with IVHQ. I have found IVHQ's service to be superb, in particular working with Katie Brayne, the IVHQ Groups Coordinator. We typically have a few unique situations that aren't necessarily covered on their website. However, in having Katie as our direct contact, the additional information we require is provided in a timely manner. I really enjoy working with her and appreciate IVHQ’s willingness to work with us. The Thailand group trip in May 2014 was the third time we’ve partnered together on a project like this and I hope that we can keep this going."
What to do next...
The next steps to take to get your group registered with IVHQ are to contact an IVHQ representative using the contact form below, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us...
- How many people are in your group?
- Where would your group like to volunteer?
- Which type of volunteer work do you like to do? (ie. Teaching, Childcare, Construction, Medical)
- How long would you like to volunteer for?
- When would you like to begin your volunteer program?
- Where is your group traveling from?
From the moment you enquire to when you come back home, we will assign you a dedicated IVHQ Groups Coordinator to work with you and our in-country team, to ensure we can tailor a program to fit with your group's requirements as best as possible. Once you have chosen a program location, and have registered to secure your plans, our IVHQ Groups Coordinator can also (in most locations) help arrange additional items such as cultural activities and sightseeing, so that your group can make the most of your time in-country.
We look forward to hearing from you!
