At GoEco we strive to create fun and meaningful volunteering opportunities for like-minded people, allowing them to experience the significance of truly making a difference!

Ideal Candidate

GoEco volunteers come from all different age groups and walks of life. We offer opportunities for students, professionals, families and even school groups. The only requirements volunteers need is that they are independent and passionate about giving back as well as being open to having new and exciting experiences whilst working hard and learning about different cultures and surroundings.

Room and Board

The accommodations vary from program to program. Some are very rustic with basic conditions but others are more comfortable. Accommodations can range from a room in a furnished volunteer house near the volunteer site to shared rooms at a local youth hostel, and from tents or cabins on a reserve to homestays with local families. Regardless, all of our volunteer accommodations are sure to provide the necessities for our participants. The specific details regarding the accommodations at each project can be found on the project page under "Full Details." 

Private rooms can often be arranged for a single participant or a couple if notified ahead of time and for an additional fee. These arrangements can be made following registration.
