ACVE - Short term 4-16 weeksIf you are short on time but would still love to volunteer, then we are delighted to offer you the ACVE short term programme.
In collaboration with our project partners across all continents, Aotearoa Cultural & Volunteer Exchange will work with you to design your own personal international volunteering programme. This will include a placement with a fantastic opportunity to travel off the beaten track and immerse yourself in the culture of your chosen country.
Not only will you have the opportunity to explore parts of the world that you have always dreamed of visiting, but you will be able to make a real difference while you are there, in whatever capacity you choose.
You can depart New Zealand any time of the year for a minimum of 4 weeks to 4 months.
Your short-term programme includes:
- Personal consultation with ACVE staff to select your host project and build your cultural and adventure travel itinerary
- Full board and lodging at your host project
- Pick up from the airport, transfer and introduction to your host project and accommodation (host family or hostel/onsite)
- Orientation meeting with ICYE staff in your chosen country to learn about all about the culture, travel, money, the ICYE programme and information about your host project and host family
- Intensive language lessons taught by experienced teachers to help you develop the necessary vocabulary, speaking and comprehension skills for a successful volunteer experience
- A dedicated person from ICYE in country who will be your contact for the whole duration of your programme in case you need assistance, available 24/7
- Logistical and emotional support from friendly experienced ICYE staff teams who are passionate about helping you to make the most of your experience
- Certificate of participation
- Transport to the airport when you are ready to return to New Zealand.
