Welcome to IV. If you’re reading this you likely already have a pretty good idea of what volunteering abroad is, and you may have already spoken to both your family and friends about why you should volunteer abroad.
What’s your main motivation for volunteering abroad? We’ll bet that you’re looking to make a real and meaningful impact in the world.

In fact, we’ve spent over 20 years perfecting the quality of our international sustainable development projects to ensure that you achieve the maximum positive impact while on your volunteer trip abroad.
