By working directly with local organizations in the countries where our programs are based, we are able to keep our fees low and ensure these go towards meaningful community projects and local employment.
we pride ourselves on the superior programs and support services we provide to our volunteers. PHIVolunteering and our local teams are passionate about facilitating rewarding travel experiences.
Quality and responsibility go hand in hand. At PHIVolunteering we are dedicated to ensuring our volunteer programs are responsibly run and have a positive impact that is sustainable over time.
From your first point of contact with PHIVolunteering until the time you finish your volunteer program, you will receive dedicated support and service from us. While your PHIVolunteering Program Manager becomes a secondary layer of support at this stage, we will remain in touch with you via email and will be accessible should you require any assistance. Once you’ve completed your volunteer program, we’ll get back in touch to hear how you got on, and to say a big “thank you”!
Volunteer safety is a top priority of PHIVolunteering which is reflected in our outstanding safety record. We have clear standards for risk management which we enforce on each program and our volunteers are placed with trustworthy institutions, organizations and families that have all been screened by our local teams. PHIVolunteering staff members conduct regular audits of every program to ensure risks are appropriately mitigated and to confirm that we are meeting our duty of care for volunteer safety and security. We also have a big focus on supporting volunteers to keep themselves safe while abroad, and we provide this support and advice through pioneering volunteer training tools and through face-to-face briefings delivered by our local teams.
In addition to forming life-long friendships with host families and the people they assist while volunteering, our volunteers also form strong bonds with their fellow volunteers. Although they come from vastly different cultures and backgrounds, the experiences that volunteers share forge strong ties that can last a lifetime.
PHIVolunteering actively seeks local teams that offer quality projects in genuine need of volunteer assistance. Whether your stay is a short or a long one, our partner organizations will ensure that you make a valuable contribution to support the long-term development goals of your host community.
Loyalty is one of the foundations that PHIVolunteering has been built on. We show strong loyalty to the communities in which we work through setting up long-term partnerships with local organizations and institutions. This allows us to make a long-term contribution to the social needs and economic prosperity of the communities where our volunteers are placed. We also reward our returning volunteers with 10% registration fee refunds.
At PHIVolunteering we recognize that there is more to an awesome volunteer travel experience than simply volunteering. While we maintain a strong focus on providing top quality programs, we also understand that many PHIVolunteering volunteers are first-time travelers and want to make time for sightseeing and exploring. To ensure that you get the most our of your PHIVolunteering experience, our local teams have established partnerships with local travel companies to provide our volunteers with access to trustworthy travel and tour activities.
