*Entries are now closed and the winner has been contacted*

In July 2022, IVHQ was celebrating 15 years of creating meaningful travel experiences - supporting more than 120,000 volunteers to use their travel as a force for good!

IVHQ started out when our founder Dan Radcliffe discovered from his own first-hand experience that volunteering abroad needed to be more accessible, better organized and way more affordable… and so the seeds of IVHQ were planted! 15 years on, we’ve grown to become the world’s most trusted and affordable volunteer program provider - bringing together people from all walks of life to make an impact on the adventure of a lifetime!
