A Few Last Notes…

Age Requirement

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old when they start their volunteering.

Experience Requirement

Project Hope is about sharing know-how, volunteers are welcome to share their experience with groups of Palestinian children and youth.

Timing + Length of Stay

Volunteers are accepted all year round, except during Ramadan. In 2017 we will be closed to all volunteers from May 30th to June 30th.

There are two types of volunteers — short-term volunteers who volunteer for 2-4 weeks, and long-term volunteers who volunteer for 5-12 weeks. We no longer accept volunteers for shorter than 2 weeks except in exceptional circumstances. Volunteers wishing to stay for longer than 3 months may only do so under invitation from the staff in Nablus after completing their initial stage of volunteering. Those wishing to volunteer for longer than 3 months should have an alternative plan in case they are not invited to continue.

Accommodations + Cost

Volunteers stay in the Project Hope apartment, which includes single-sex shared bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, toilet and living space. There is a fee to cover the costs of accommodation that must be paid in advance, as well a contribution for the expenses incurred in hosting volunteers. Please see our Volunteer Contributions document (opens a new window), which explains the costs and rationale behind them in full.

Something to think about…

We are a small grassroots organisation, and we do not have time to hunt down volunteers. The responsibility is yours to remain in contact with us. We are looking for committed, skilled volunteers who are dedicated, responsible, and able to work independently as well as part of our team. We are here to help you throughout your volunteer experience with us, but you will be expected to be able to take care of yourself as well. Volunteering overseas, especially in a developing and conflict environment, is not a decision to be taken lightly, and should be carefully thought through prior to applying.
