Volunteering is a great way to broaden your outlook on the world, whether you do it in your home country or overseas. There are lots of ways in which you can give your time, energy and skills. We make volunteering easy.
What makes volunteering through IVP special?
At IVP 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 and promote discussion and an appreciation of the problems that different communities face in their struggles for social justice and environmental harmony.
Why do we have peace in our name?
Conflict, struggle, injustice, discrimination, isolation, environmental degradation and destruction threaten peace between peoples. Responding to these problems is vital to our shared global future.
International Volunteers for Peace believes that it is the everyday actions of ordinary people of different backgrounds living and working together that make peace possible.
