We recommend long-term volunteering projects in particular to all volunteers who already have experience in international volunteering. Since the long-term projects we offer are not taking place within regulated voluntary service, the application process is relatively short. An intensive individual preparation should be planned nevertheless. Participation in our preparatory training (in German) is already included in the placement fee.
In any case, you should bring flexibility, adaptability, good improvisation and communication skills. All of these soft skills are practiced and enhanced by participating in a long-term volunteering service - in addition to many more new skills and experiences!
Travel costs during the voluntary service can sometimes be reimbursed. All extra costs have to be covered by the volunteers themselves.
