PROGRAM LENGTHS AND ROLES

IVTC volunteer/intern programs are hands-on learning experiences that vary in length. We encourage volunteers/interns to stay for at least three weeks, but volunteers are welcome to sign up for any length of time. Long-term stays of over six months are welcome and negotiable. Many volunteers combine their stay with time spent doing more traditional tourist activities elsewhere in Tanzania - such as safaris, climbing and beach holidays. No matter how long you decide to volunteer, you will have a remarkable experience and will gain a firsthand understanding of how Tanzanians live their daily lives.

There are many ways in which our volunteers/interns choose to spend their time and contribute towards IVTC. Most volunteers/interns spend a proportion of their time with planning activities, outings and teaching. Whilst specific job roles and activities are flexible, according to your talents and preferences (and IVTC needs), volunteers/interns often adopt one of the following job roles during their stay with us. In practice, each volunteer/intern brings their own skills, interests and experience, and can offer their own personal contribution and fresh ideas. It is ultimately up to the volunteer to decide what they would like to do for IVTC, and most end up having multiple roles and projects. Volunteers/interns are welcome at any time of our projects.

 WHAT ELSE CAN VOLUNTEER DO?

Most of your volunteer/intern work will be conducted during the day, Monday through Friday, and volunteers/interns are encouraged to explore Tanzania and its nightlife during the evening and weekends.  

Kilimanjaro is another starting point for climbing Mt.Kilimanjaro and visiting many of Tanzania's national parks and volunteers/interns can easily arrange safaris to famous parks such as the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater as well as many others.

Kilimanjaro International Airport also has reasonably-priced air links to most destinations in Tanzania, including Zanzibar.
