Programs: IVP provides six-week volunteer placements in France, the UK and the US. The program last a total of six- weeks during the summer, from the week of June 20 to the end of July/early August. During these six weeks, participants volunteer full time (up to eight hours a day, five days a week) in their volunteer placement. Placements are available in France, England and California.

During this placement, all meals, lodging and transportation to the agency are provided for the volunteer. The International Volunteer Program makes all assignments. IVP takes education, background and interests of applicants and the needs of the agencies into consideration in matching volunteers with agencies.

The International Volunteer Program began as a collaboration between La Sociiti Frangaise de Bienfaisance Mutuelle, the French Consulate in San Francisco, and the University of California at Irvine and Le Comiti des Jumelages de Troyes in 1991. IVP was designed to reward demonstrated dedication to helping others, while simultaneously providing the singularly rich and educational experience of living and working abroad. Its additional advantages include language improvement, cross-cultural learning, and on-site work experience. Over the pat 10 years, the International Volunteer Program has facilitated cultural immersion for hundreds of volunteers and provided volunteer staffing for more than 100 non-profit organizations.

The International Volunteer Program helps bridge cultural boundaries by placing a foreign visitor in the position of volunteer and co-worker, by giving of themselves and volunteering their time and skills, the participants have the rare opportunity to personally experience life in a foreign country. In the process, they gain new and unique insights into not only a new culture and language but into the concept of giving itself.
