It costs i58 $1500 per volunteer to provide lodging, transportation, and one meal a day while volunteers are in Greece. Volunteers are expected to donate $1500 to i58 before their time of service to cover their costs.
We need single volunteers, couples old and young, and families. To volunteer as an individual, you must be 18.
August 2021 Update: We will now only be accepting 3 month volunteers. 1 - 2 month terms are no longer available. However, if you cannot commit for 3 months, please select "other" and send an email to [email protected] immediately after completing your application with the reason that you cannot commit to 3 months. We will consider shorter term volunteers but priority will be given volunteers that can stay for 3 months.
Each first time volunteer is required to be a part of a 2-day training held each month in Lancaster, PA. Volunteers must provide their own transportation to the training. All lodging and food costs during training will be provided.
Volunteers buy their plane tickets through our travel agency after application and acceptance. Ticket costs range from $700-$1,200 depending on the time of year.
All i58 volunteers are required to have an internationally unlocked smartphone for safety and communication purposes while in Greece.
Wifi is easily accessible in all i58 buildings and apartments. An international SIM card is provided to each volunteer upon arrival.
