Why do I have to pay a deposit?

After you have received an offer from your social project concerning your application and accepted it, you have to pay the deposit. The deposit exists in order to reserve your placement spot at the social project.

The deposit you pay to volunteer abroad  goes directly to Volunteer World and is the fee that we receive to run and facilitate your volunteer abroad trip.

Please be aware of that the deposit amount is automatically deducted from the total program fees given on the program page of your social project. There won't be additional costs.
