Return of the Volunteers for Peace

This season our international Volunteers for Peace program returns after a 3 year hiatus. It runs from 9 July to 22 July, as we welcome up to 8 volunteers from around the world. So far, we have volunteers signed up from Germany, Taiwan, Italy, Mexico, Hungary, and The Netherlands. VFP partners with local volunteer organizations in each country, to make it easier to apply for and obtain a visa. You can email them at to ask about partner organizations in your country. A list can also be found on their website at

2019 VFP volunteers with a few other volunteers at Letchworth State Park.
