How to use this page.

Send the host/organization a message and wait for a reply.
Volunteering in Turkey… for independent travellers!
The majority of these opportunities is completely free (you receive free food and accommodation in exchange for voluntary work – wwoof style). A few opportunities might require a daily/monthly contribution fee for the food. Remember that many areas in Turkey are still in the development process and volunteering can’t always be a ‘free’ thing.
If you want to have an “impact” but you only have a few weeks to do volunteering abroad, we recommend you to choose the non free-opportunities: you will contribute not only with your skills but also with your money to improve the local community.
Some organizations in Turkey might require travel insurance: learn what is currently the best travel insurance solution for volunteers according to us.
