How it works

So, you want to be a GIVE volunteer?

Join our GIVE family to transform your life, become an engaged global citizen, and unite with our huge network of past GIVE volunteers and local communities taking action to have a positive impact on our world!


Here’s how it works:







Before signing up for one of our programs, you’ll need to submit an application to be accepted.  Don’t worry, it’s easy, doesn’t commit you to anything and it’s good for life!

    Keep an eye out for your acceptance email!


Choose your location!

Haven’t decided where you want to volunteer? Head over to our Volunteer Locations to start exploring our trips. Watch our videos to experience our locations by simply pressing play. These trips will change your life, but you don’t have to take our word for it; read reviews from past volunteers to hear about their experience! 

    TIP: If you have questions, contact us! Everyone here at GIVE started as a past volunteer and we’re happy to chat about our experience!







Select Your Trip Dates!

Once you receive your acceptance email, you’ll create a password for your Volunteer Profile. This is where all the magic happens! Here you can select your trip dates, pay your deposit and get your trip finalized.

    A $550 trip deposit reserves your spot, which goes towards your remaining balance. An additional $300 deposit will reserve your spot on one of our Package or Add-On experiences!


Prepare For Your Trip

Your Volunteer Profile will be your trip guide; it will provide instructions to book your flights, upload important documents, advise you on travel insurance, and more. To get the inside scoop you can also visit Travel Details for more info.

   TIP: Fundraise for your volunteer trip with our Fundraising toolkit! You can also fundraise for your deposit, if needed!


Impact the World! 

The time has come for you to take that leap of faith. Travel responsibly with GIVE to change your life, change the world, and be the roots of change. Join our GIVE family!

   TIP: Embrace every moment! GIVE’s immersive experience will impact the rest of your life.
