Volunteer in 3 easy steps

Volunteering with VSI is a straight forward process! Take these 3 easy steps and soon you'll be participating in an international or local volunteer project.

Step 1 - Check out our database and find a project

- If you are interested in an International Volunteer Project (1-4 weeks),
