For over a decade GoAbroad.com has been the leading resource for meaningful travel and has helped millions of individuals connect with organizations who provide international volunteering opportunities. With this comes a lot of responsibility, and over the years we have implemented a number of measures to ensure GoAbroad users are connected with legitimate volunteer abroad organizations. One of these measures is the GoAbroad Verification Badge.
Beyond Just Another "Badge"
As the volunteer abroad market continues to grow, the importance of being identified as a verified and legitimate program provider becomes even more crucial. In recent years we have addressed this issue with our tick verification system on our program listings. This allows us to identify a provider as ‘Verified’ by meeting a number of prerequisites.
To all organizations and institutions offering international volunteer opportunities, GoAbroad would like to encourage you to complete your GoAbroad verification by providing your business registration details and examples of positive participant testimonials.
GoAbroad asks that you also make sure to respond to all GoAbroad test email inquiries and phone calls!
Once your verification has been completed, a member of our staff will award you with the GoAbroad verification badge for display on your website. This acts as a stamp of approval and is a clear way for users and possible program participants to measure the legitimacy of your organization.
Already Verified? Let the World Know!
If you've determined that your organization/institution has already met the criteria of GoAbroad's verification system, by successfully scoring a double tick, we would like to extend the opportunity for you to include our new GoAbroad.com verification badge on your website. This badge acts as a stamp of approval and is a clear way for users and possible program participants to measure the legitimacy of your organization.
To get your own badge, organizations should contact their designated Partner Relations Representative for more information.
