Special Needs Volunteer Placements

Sarah, one of our Central American volunteer abroad program coordinators, is currently visiting our volunteer in Mexico, volunteer in Costa Rica and volunteer in Colombia programs.

Our Special Needs placements in the IVHQ volunteer in Peru Lima and volunteer in Peru Cusco programs are desperately in need of more volunteers. If you are interested in these programs, apply online for the Orphanage/Childcare volunteer programs and note in the comments section you want to volunteer abroad in the Special Needs program.

Why volunteer with IVHQ? 

Jessica Laurin (starting with Team BSU in the volunteer in Costa Rica program in January 2012) commented in her application "IVHQ is a lot cheaper than the other organisations I researched and includes everything the others had to offer."

The most frequently asked question in the IVHQ office this week -

"Can we volunteer as a family?"

Yes! We need you to apply online separately and note in the comments section you are all volunteering abroad together.

Also make sure to look at the IVHQ Facebook page (has over 15,600 members) for more information and volunteer reviews on all our volunteer abroad programs. A great way to get a more specific response for your program is to search the program name in the top right hand corner of the page and all relevant postings will come up on your screen. You can read previous discussions and make contact with other volunteers who have done or are doing the same program as you.
