UNESCO and CCIVS do not recruit volunteers directly. If you want to join one of the Patrimonito Voluntary actions, please contact directly the host organisations - their contact details are indicated at the bottom of each project description - and they will provide you with further information regarding the steps that you need to take in order to be one of the volunteers.

  Profile of volunteers:
CCIVS member organisations generally work with non-specialised volunteers of all ages who want to invest their time, energy and ideas in a project for the benefit of a local community anywhere on earth.
The WHV workcamps generaly last between 10 days and 3 weeks.
Generally speaking you will have to pay a registration fee to the sending organisation, which orients you towards the appropriate program. Travel costs are usually paid by the volunteers themselves, while board and lodging is provided by the host organisation. In the case of projects in economically disadvantaged countries, a participation fee can be requested by the host organisation.

In most cases, the sending/host organisation will demand the volunteer to participate in special intercultural training sessions before departure or upon arrival.
In any case it is necessary that the volunteers prepare themselves properly before departure.
Participants will receive an info-sheet send by the host organisation, with all the accurate information (how to get to the site, what to bring, the work to be performed, the country and the area, the weather, etc.).
