Volunteer Contribution

Similar to most volunteer lead NGOs, ETIV does require a volunteer contribution, although we are among the most affordable, particularly for our location. This contribution is critical to the sustainability of the NGO and helps covers costs of administration, your insurance coverage and all of the support that we offer to our volunteers.

You will receive:

  • Pre-departure orientation and preparation
  • Induction and biking tour of Itacaré
  • Introduction to your project
  • Strategy meeting to help you plan and achieve your top goals during your time with us
  • Ongoing supervision and support, including any additional meetings you may request to receive support with plans, strategies, ideas, questions etc.
  • 24-hour emergency support
  • Insurance Coverage
Duration Contribution (per month)
1 month $275
2 months $233
3 months $198
4 months $168
5 months $143
6 months $121

To reserve your placement we require a 20% non-refundable deposit (which goes towards the overall cost of your volunteer experience). Those wishing to stay for longer than 6 months will only be required to pay the 6 month total, and any additional months will be free of charge!
