The volunteer is solely responsible for arranging and paying for their own travel, specifically including all airfares or other transport costs to and from the host country, as well as any local transport costs. It is the responsibility of the volunteer to carry all necessary documents when traveling abroad. While YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER may advise the volunteer on required travel documentation, YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER is not responsible for any supporting documents necessary for the volunteer’s travel needs or other purposes. Volunteers are responsible for ensuring their travel documents are up to date and valid for travel.
All Volunteers must obtain, on their own initiative, the relevant visa for the country they are travelling to. All questions regarding travel and visas should be put to the relevant embassy in the home country before travelling. YouSocial Volunteer does not endorse listed organizations, and Volunteers are not agents of YouSocial Volunteer.
Travel insurance is mandatory for each volunteer, and the volunteer will purchase this prior to departing on the trip. The volunteer is solely responsible for evaluating and determining the type, extent and levels of any insurance coverage they need or desire for their planned volunteer travel period. This must cover their entire travel period. However, if the volunteer is interested YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER can offer a travel insurance through one of our insurance partners.
YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER’s registration and program fees are designed to be very affordable, especially when compared to companies who provide comparable volunteer travel services. As a consequence, YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER is unable to provide and does not provide a total refund policy.
Payment of registration fees confirms a volunteer’s acceptance onto one of YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER’s volunteer programs. Registration fees are not transferable to other persons and further details are set out on our website.
The registration fee is refundable until sixty days before the start date of the volunteer’s chosen program (based on Spanish time). All registration fee refunds are subject to a 150€ cancellation fee, incurred as a result of administrative and processing costs. Requests for registration fee refunds must be made via a email to your YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER Program Manager, clearly detailing the reasons for cancellation.
Cancellations are subject to the following policies:
- The circumstances regarding eligibility for a refund and the associated notice period are based on the earliest start date the volunteer has ever been registered for.
- If a volunteer cancels sixty days or more before their earliest program start date, they can request a refund of the registration fee, which will be provided less a 150€ cancellation fee. Alternatively, they may ask for a registration fee credit to be held in their name for future use on any YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER program, subject to availability, for a period of twelve months from their earliest registered start date. This credit may be issued less the value of any change fees the volunteer has incurred.
- If a volunteer cancels less tan fifty-nine days before their program’s start date, no refund of registration fees is available. A registration fee credit, less any change fees the volunteer has incurred, may be held in their name for a period of twelve months from their earliest registered start date, for future use on another YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER program, subject to program availability and at the discretion of the YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER Program Manager.
Volunteers who apply and cancel within the timeframes mentioned above are held to the same conditions in relation to their eligibility for a refund.
In case of force majeure, i.e. an event that happens outside of the volunteers’ control, including natural disasters, civil unrest and/or any other unforeseeable event of this kind that could disrupt the volunteer trip, they can request a refund of the registration fee, which will be provided less a 150€ cancellation fee. Alternatively, they may ask for a registration fee credit to be held in their name for future use on any YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER program, subject to availability, for a period of twelve months from their earliest registered start date. This credit may be issued less the value of any change fees the volunteer has incurred.
Once a volunteer’s refund request has been received by YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER, they will be notified via email. If no notification is received within three working days, the assumption should be made that the request has not been received and the volunteer is advised to contact his or her YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER Program Manager again.
If a volunteer registers and requests a verification letter, they cannot then receive a refund for their registration fee should they withdraw from the program.
Where a group of ten or more people is volunteering with YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER, the group leader must register ahead of other group members in order to secure the group’s dates and plans. Group members must then apply and register no less than sixty days before the program starts. Group members who register less than sixty days before the program start date may be excluded from the program, unless approved by YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER.
YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER reserves the right to revise the registration fee at any time. All registration fee revisions will be made via the YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER website. Registration fee revisions are not applicable to volunteers who have already submitted their registration fee payment before the revisions are due to take effect. A volunteer’s placement on a program is not confirmed until registration fee has been paid in full and availability has been checked by their YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER Program Manager.
Details of the program fees are set out on the YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER website and any fee revisions will be made public via that platform. Program fee revisions are not applicable to volunteers who have already paid their registration fee, unless the volunteer alters their program details after the program fee revisions have taken effect.
Program fees are non-refundable. Any exceptions to this are considered on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER prior to the volunteer’s start date, or at the discretion of the local team once the volunteer’s program has started. All requests for program fee refunds and partial program fee refunds agreed by YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER or the local team are subject to a cancellation fee of up to 150€, to cover administrative and transaction costs.
Volunteers who cancel from their program and then reinstate their program at another time are subject to program fee differences and any revisions or variations to the program costs that have occurred at the time they wish to reinstate. Program fee credits expire twenty four months after being issued, or at YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER’s discretion.
Program fees are due no later than thirty days prior to the beginning of the volunteer’s program placement. Failure to make this payment can result in a loss of volunteer placement with no refund of registration fee.
Where a group of ten or more people is volunteering with YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER, program fees and fees for additional services for each group member must be paid no later than thirty days before the program starts. Where a group has requested additional services such as tours as part of their itinerary, all cancellations and refunds are subject to the terms defined by the providers of these additional services.
Change of Dates and Duration
Once registered and before they begin their trip, the volunteer is entitled to change their start date and duration once at no additional cost. Any additional changes to their start date, destination or duration after the initial free change requires payment of an administration fee of 50€ for each change. Program changes within fourteen days of the volunteer’s start date will incur a late change fee of 150€. If a volunteer wishes to change their start date, the registration fee is only valid for new start dates within twelve months of the earliest start date they have been registered for.
YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER Rewards
YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER offers a 20€ referral reward for YOUSOCIALvolunteers who refer a friend or family member to volunteer with YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER and she/he is accepted and has paid the Registration fee.

Terms and Conditions apply to all YOUSOCIAL VOLUNTEER Rewards.
The volunteer acknowledges and accepts the responsibilities and risks associated with their choice to travel to, temporarily reside in, and provide volunteer services in a foreign country.
