In addition to individual volunteer projects, International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) also specializes in group volunteer projects abroad.
Every year, IVHQ places between 300 to 500 volunteers abroad on specifically customized group projects. We can cater for a range of group sizes across our wide variety of volunteer projects, and have previously hosted groups from the USA, Canada, Australia, UK, Kuwait, Singapore and many other locations across Europe and Asia. Groups must have at least 10 members in order to receive their own unique Groups Coordinator, and we have no limit to the group size, having hosted groups of up to 40 in number on our programs.
We have worked with a variety of different groups and can arrange corporate volunteer projects, high school volunteer projects, college volunteer projects, university volunteer projects, church volunteer projects and even projects for large groups of family and friends. If you have a group and wish to volunteer abroad - IVHQ is the organization for you!.
We also recognize that many groups have their own procedures and requirements when arranging international volunteer travel. We therefore have a dedicated IVHQ Groups Coordinator who will work with you and your group throughout your preparations. In particular, we are able to arrange invoices and alternative payment methods for groups of more than 10 in number.

"From start to finish, we were provided with wonderful support in planning our trip. All questions were answered in a professional and timely manner, leaving no doubt in my mind that we were going to have a successful trip. The trip served as a wonderful experience, and I would surely recommend this organization. It is certainly one of the more affordable ones, but IVHQ assures a higher level of comfort with their support. I am personally looking forward to future trips in their other locations such as Costa Rica or Guatemala. Wonderful experience!" - University of Connecticut Doctors Without Borders (Peru Cusco)
