Volunteering in the UK:
These programs are NOT supported by Power-of-You.org; rather, brought to your attention to drive visibility of alternative programs and the costs associated.
3H Fund volunteers pay PS60 (about USD99) to work for one week in England, covering all accommodations and meals–because all 3H Fund holidays last up to one week and most cost PS60, I’ve doubled this price to assume you’ll volunteer for two trips back-to-back. Volunteers act as caretakers and assistants for disabled individuals who otherwise would not be able to vacation on their own.
Earthwatch offers volunteer programs in England starting at $2,495 for two weeks. This pays for accommodations and meals, orientation and training, and project expenses, and volunteers assist with scientific research and data collection.
Habitat for Humanity’s volunteer program in Northern Ireland lasts 10 days and costs $2,220, which covers accommodation, meals, support, and workshops. Volunteers assist with construction projects and attend workshops focused on conflict resolution and peace building.
