Volunteer along with your partner or friend.
My experience in 5 Elements was really good, Simona was so nice always and she always wanted make sure that we felt confortable in the hostel, also the whole staff, really nice people in general. I definitely recommend this experience here 😊
my time here was amazing. I truly felt in home. Silvia is the most welcoming hosts I've ever met. the family in general is grate, the bedroom is comfortable. the town is close enough to brussels. In summary I will come back if I have the chance.
It was my first experience being a volunteer and Samart and Tawan made it just incredible, memorable. I learnt so much about Thailand, about how to live simple and how to be good and help people. Samart is amazing, I'd love to come back one day.
Worldpackers has been around for more than 7 years and has facilitated thousands of confirmed trips.
Our team verifies and approves each and every host before they may join our community.
We constantly monitor all reviews our travelers write about their experiences with our hosts.
Confirm your trips to formalize an agreement with your host including your dates, work hours, and activities.
Yearly :) You only pay for your plan one time to get all of its benefits for the full validity of your plan.
Absolutely not. You won’t be charged anything else at all during the time you use Worldpackers, no matter how many applications you send out, the number of trips you take, or how much content you consume
Some specific hosts request an extra collaboration fee to contribute to their institution/NGO, or to help with costs to make your experience even more rewarding. Make sure to discuss this kind of information with your host before confirming your trip. Learn more.
Don’t worry. We’ll never renew your plan automatically, so you’ll only be charged one time. We’ll reach out to you when your plan is about to expire, and the decision to renew it or not is entirely up to you :)
The Couples/Friends plan was designed especially for those who want to volunteer together with a travel companion. Only one of you needs to pay, and then you can invite your companion. You will then both be able to apply to and confirm trips together during the full validity of your plan. In other words, you will not be able to apply individually.
We work hard to make sure our community hosts are always responsive. However, they do receive a lot of applications, and they need to pick volunteers that are the best fit for their projects.
So to increase your chances of being accepted, make your profile nice and complete, earn certificates in our Academy, and apply to multiple hosts that you can identify with.
And of course, our support team can also help you to find new volunteer opportunities and give you more tips to increase your chances.
