IVHQ is an affordable way to see the world and give back.

Looking for the most affordable way to see the world and give back?

We take pride in offering the most affordable volunteer abroad programs, thanks to our low cost programs. We regularly review our Program Fees to ensure they remain as affordable, accessible, and inclusive as possible so that we can maximize the number of people able to give back abroad with IVHQ.

IVHQ’s Program Fees start from just $20 (approximately $20) per day fully hosted, with accommodation, meals, airport pickup, and 24/7 in-country support all included.

Other volunteer abroad providers charge a lot more. So how is IVHQ able to offer high quality, fully hosted experiences at such affordable prices? Find out here.

How to volunteer abroad for free with IVHQ.

Want to volunteer abroad for free?

Paying to join an IVHQ volunteer abroad program allows us to organize the whole trip for you, ensuring that your volunteering placement and accommodation have been vetted by us and keeping you safe through our 24/7 support. It also puts money back into the local community and economy in a sustainable way.

However, there are plenty of ways you can make your volunteer trip extra affordable – or even offset the entire cost of your trip – while still benefiting from the reassurance of IVHQ’s support.

Here are some ideas to reduce the expense of volunteering abroad:

  • Choose one of IVHQ’s most affordable programs – our Program Fees start at just $20 (approximately $20) per day fully hosted
  • Create an online fundraising campaign - we recommend GoGetFunding
  • Fundraise through bake sales, yard sales, or organize a ticketed event!
  • Get a grant through your university or college

Already got an IVHQ program in mind?

Don’t hang around waiting! Apply and register for your chosen volunteer program now to ensure you don’t miss out on your top choice. IVHQ programs have limited capacity and get booked up very quickly for popular periods. That way, you can still enter any competitions or scholarships later and get reimbursed if you win, without worrying about losing your place on the program!
