FAQ Home


How long should I book in advance?

Volunteers are asked to book about 2-3 months in advance of when they want to travel. Build Abroad can accept volunteers as little as 1 month in advance, but there is no guarantee that spots will be available in that short of time.

Can I extend my stay once volunteering?

Yes. Please contact us when in country if you are interested in extending your trip.

What’s the farthest in advance I can book?

We offer trips on our site up to 1 year in advance. If you are sure you are going to take a trip farther than a year out (such as with a large group), please contact us directly.

How long can I stay?

We offer trips as short as 1 week and as long as 6 months. If you wish to volunteer for an extended stay (longer than 6 months) please contact us directly.
