How can I travel safely?

When you get matched through MovingWorlds, we provide you with a number of resources including a guided planning process in partnership with your host to support you in planning a safe trip. You can learn more about our organization and project vetting process here.

As part of your MovingWorlds onboarding packet, you will also receive a project and travel planning checklist with plenty of resources to educate you on safe travel and international volunteering techniques!

Traveling overseas carries inherent risks, as does volunteering. MovingWorlds is a matching and support team, but it cannot guarantee your safety. It is important to read our terms of use to fully understand what we do (and don’t) do.
