Program Costs

Why does it cost money to volunteer?

The reason it costs money to volunteer is to cover your housing, food, airport pickup, and in-country support. Also, part of the trip costs go towards construction materials for the job sites and supporting our local partner organizations. Build Abroad is very competitive in their volunteer pricing compared to other volunteer organizations.

What is included in my costs?

Housing, 2 meals per day, airport pickup, orientation, in country support, as well as a donation towards building supplies.
