Frequently asked questions: 
 
I am interested in a volunteer position, where can I get information about your projects?
First there is general information about our projects at: https://www.vsocialfoundation.org/ 
If you then click on a specific project under the respective country, you can find out more about the possible areas of responsibility under the heading Volunteer work.
 
What happens after my application documents have been sent?
After submitting your application, we will check whether the position is available and whether your profile meets the job requirements. If we can say yes to both, we will invite you to an interview on Skype within a week. After this discussion, we will contact the project management. They will then decide whether you can get involved in the project and, if necessary, will invite you to a second interview, where all further details will be discussed. Even if a cooperation is not possible, you will get a feedback from us. 
 
Is there a minimum or maximum age?
The minimum age for a volunteer position varies from project to project and ranges from 18 to 25 years. There is no maximum age with us! The projects have already had good experiences with volunteers between 65 and 70 years of age.
 
For how long can I apply to you?
As the minimum length of stay varies from project to project and we have no closing date, we receive applications all year round. Please note that the long summer holidays in South America take place between December and February and that no volunteer positions in the school projects can be filled during this time.
 
How much will I have to pay?
The costs vary from project to project. The volunteer is responsible for the organisation of insurance, flights, accommodation, food, visa and other organisational matters, as well as for personal safety. We recommend that you take out an international health insurance including repatriation.
Unfortunately, we cannot pay for the work done on volunteer or internship positions. We do not charge a fee for the placement of a vacancy, so at least you will not incur any costs for this.
