Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive, with answers

Most of our roles allow for skilled volunteers/development workers to receive a monthly living allowance, return airfares from their own country to their country of assignment, as well as contributions towards vaccinations and insurance.

All volunteers who have been successful in finding an overseas placement are asked to contribute a minimum of €600 to VC towards the cost of their placement.  Fundraising this amount can be as easy as holding one or two coffee mornings in your local community, holding a table quiz or speaking in your local parish or just asking family, friends and colleagues to fundraise for you!    The fundraising requirement forms part of the pre-departure process.

We aim to match volunteers to roles that complement their skill sets. Our projects differ worldwide in their focus therefore, it depends on the openings available at that time. If you don’t see a role or country that suits you now why not sign up to our Volunteer Panel to be considered for future openings?
