- Be more than 18 years old at the time of the mission.
- The missions we offer are in the frame of Fondacio, a Christian movement addressing to a large audience. Our volunteers don’t need to believe but should know and share a minimum of values (listening, welcoming the other, sharing and giving) to feel at ease in the missions.
- Be willing to be open to another culture and different lifestyles.
- Have a skill that can be put in practice in one of Fondacio’s missions
- Be able to adapt to different lifestyles, and to work with a team.
- Be able to speak Spanish if you want to go on a mission in Latin America, or English if you go to the Philippines and French for the other projects.
- Be willing to fundraise, since Fondacio can’t support all its volunteers. We help you to fundraise and realize this mission. For us, the financing of each project is very important. Indeed, we believe that fundraising fully participates in the maturing of each project.
Before any departure, Volunteers for the World sets up trainings to fully help the volunteers in the preparation of their mission.
We also offer a support in your administrative procedures : passport, visa, vaccines…
You should count from 6 to 9 months from your application to your departure.
