Together we can make a difference!
InterNations believes that global change starts with every one of us helping out in our communities.
The InterNations Volunteer Program is a worldwide initiative that involves several thousand InterNations members, who donate their time and talents to people in need.
With the Volunteer Program, InterNations mobilizes its members around the world to take part in monthly volunteering Activities. All InterNations members have the possibility to get involved and do something good for the disadvantaged people in their community.
InterNations strives to establish one Volunteer Group in each InterNations Community and thus have a positive, worldwide impact on society.
The InterNations Volunteer Program was established in Protected content already has over 4,000 participants. We are active in 15 cities around the world and support more than 1,000 people in need! (As of the end of Protected content

Knowledge transfer – Handicrafting with refugee children
How It Works
The approach of the program is to provide regular and sustainable support for local non-profit organizations. Each Volunteer Group organizes at least one Activity per month and has its own Group page on the InterNations website. It supports one local organization for at least one year, in order to establish a stable and trusting relationship. Up to three Volunteer Group Consuls manage the Group and organize the Activities. If you would like to know how we choose our partner organizations, please have a look at our selection criteria here.
How We Help
There are different types of Activities: Fundraising, Goods Donation, Knowledge Transfer, Helping Hands, Group Activities and One-on-One. Each month a different Activity takes place. The Activity Calendar enables our partner organizations to plan ahead and to count on our support. Each Activity provides help using a different approach.
