What makes volunteering with us so special?

We see volunteering as a way of achieving social change.

Bringing people from around the world together to do something practical and learn about each other is a great start. As an IVP volunteer you should be ready to ask and be asked; to question and explain your values and those of your society; to share information and to teach and be taught.

Our activities encourage understanding, promote discussion and an appreciation of the problems that different communities face in their struggles for social justice and environmental harmony.
