International Volunteers

The AVP welcomes international volunteers through Volunteers for Peace, a non-profit volunteer placement group. VFP volunteers must pay their travel expenses to and from Allegany, NY, but while here, food and lodging are covered by volunteer contributions and a VFP fee. This year we will host up to 6 VFP volunteers for two weeks (15 July to 29 July). VFP partners with local volunteer organizations in each country, to make it easier to apply. For more information, you can visit Our project code is VFP-STV05-17.
