Responsible Volunteering is an independent, privately owned website not affiliated with any provider of volunteer programs.

Our Mission

  1. Provide a platform that helps potential volunteers to make good choices
  2. Gather a range of information that helps operators and volunteers
  3. Connect people interested in the field of voluntourism
  4. Bring more transparency to the world of international volunteering
  5. Promote and share information in order to enhance a common understanding of the idea and impact of voluntourism.

Our Motivation

We believe that responsible volunteer programs are a great option to those who are willing to spend their time and money to get in touch with different countries, cultures and living conditions. But we know it is a tough challenge to create a program that is really making a change. Therefore we want to inform, support and encourage those who try.
