A: Because our overseas development projects are managed and operated in partnership with the local community, we do not send volunteers or interns overseas. We recruit qualified local volunteers since they speak the same language and understand the culture of the people. This also provides local volunteers the opportunity to develop skills. World Vision does have international job opportunities, which are listed at the WVI website at www.wvi.org.
A: We will coordinate a schedule based on the volunteer’s availability and the department’s need. Most volunteers work one to two days per week for 4-16 hours total. We do ask a minimum commitment of three months.
