Volunteer form

Before you fill in this form to volunteer internationally, please read about our current volunteer opportunities. If you live in a country with a National Organization and want to volunteer there, please contact your National Organization directly.

The minimum age for overseas applicants is 18.

A Rocha teams do not have the resources to help with visa applications. Please only apply to volunteer in a country if you can obtain the necessary visa without assistance.

On the whole, our volunteering opportunities require some contribution towards the costs of food and accommodation, as we have no central funds to cover these costs. Details of costs will be listed with each opportunity or be confirmed in conversation with the host national organization.

In the UK, under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, since A Rocha staff and volunteers may be concerned with the provision to persons aged under 18 of leisure and recreational facilities, we have to ask this.
ARI offsets the carbon emissions from all staff travel made on behalf of ARI with our partner, Climate Stewards, and we invite you to do the same. The money is used to fund A Rocha Ghana to plant indigenous trees which not only lock up carbon, but improve livelihoods and restore local biodiversity as new forest areas are created.

The details you supply will be stored by A Rocha International. They may be passed to any A Rocha National Organizations who take volunteers and also to the A Rocha National Organization in the country of the address you have given. The details will be stored in compliance with the Data Protection Act and will not be supplied to others without your permission.
