FAQ > How long can I go for?

Workcamps are typically 2/3 weeks long, but can last longer depending on the objectives of the project.

You can also do medium or long term volunteering through VAP where placements last from 1 month to one year.

Volunteers on medium and long term placements are more likely to be working as the only volunteer or within a smaller group than when on short term projects.

Quote of the day

« I can say that the best things about the workcamp and this whole experience were the chance of making a real difference to the lives of very needy children. This is an extremely valuable project where volunteers can have a massive impact. Also the possibility of learning a huge amount about a country so different from our own. I learnt ten times as much by carrying out a workcamp than I would ever do backpacking. »
