Overview

The freshly revised 9th edition of The International Directory of Voluntary Work gives full details of over 700 organizations around the world that need all types of people for all types of work for periods of time that can vary from a few hours to a few years.


The book gives full details of the placement organizations listed, their objectives, and the types of volunteers they are looking for--some may need trained and experienced professionals with some specific expertise, while others are looking simply for willing people with the time and motivation to help them. The listings also describe the lengths of time for which volunteers are required; if board, lodging, and insurance are provided; whether pocket money is paid; or if a registration fee is charged.

Residential work available worldwide includes schemes such as organic farming in Thailand, nursing in Chile, participating in archaeological digs in France, re-enacting battles in Pennsylvania, observing birds in the Madagascan rainforest, bee-keeping in Hungary, working with street children in Brazil, studying humpback whales in Hawaii, teaching English in Laos, or running development programs in India.

The book also covers non-residential voluntary work in the UK and the USA, with possibilities such as planting trees in San Francisco, caring for seal pups in Cornwall, helping to re-house homeless people, working in a dragonfly museum, puppy-walking guide dogs for the blind, sorting books to be sent to developing countries, and preparing food for dolphins in Florida.
