Welcome to Ethical Volunteering

This site offers advice & information for people who are interested in international volunteering and want to make sure that what they do is of value to themselves and the people they work with.

Whether you have a few weeks or a few years there are now loads of organisations that will help you find a volunteer programme. But some of these programmes are much better than others. Go to 'the guide' section for more information on how to choose a volunteer programme.

While volunteers intentions are nearly always good, this does not mean that all volunteer prorgammes or indeed volunteers, are good. Indeed there are some programmes, and some volunteers out there that can be said to do more harm than good. This site offers some ideas to help you work out how you can be a valuable international volunteer and how to choose a valuable volunteering placement. For more information visit 'the guide' section of the site.
