It is either collected by ALTRUIS Indonesia on behalf of the host organization or paid in cash (in the specified currency) upon your arrival as set out in your detailed program.
Placements are most of our projects, about 80%, short-term (2-3 weeks). There are also medium-term projects (1-3 months) and permanent projects (6 -10 months), offered all year depending on the project. If the placement length changes from what is listed, the longer or shorter length will be indicated in your suggested program.

Also known as short-term projects. Volunteers live and work within partner organization for local business or school with people from 3 or more countries for a 2-3 week service project. Together volunteers also meet the needs of the local community while living like family and creating life-long, global friendships.
Volunteer on a project for 1-3 months within a local business community or school. You may have 1 or 2 other international volunteers or local volunteers with you during the project. This is a more individualized experience.
Individual Service Adventure/Gap Year Experience:
This could be a combination of short-term projects to allow you to visit or focus on one location and culture.
Travel Costs: Participants could be relatively responsible for all travel costs. This includes travel to a location within your placement country that is serviced by public or private transport. This is where you will normally be met by your placement host. If a special meeting is needed (ie Airport Transfers), then the host may require their costs to be covered by the incoming volunteer.
To meet ALTRUIS Indonesia’s obligations to our Placement Hosts, ALTRUIS Indonesia’s volunteers are required to have Health and Accident Travel Insurance that will cover medical and evacuations costs.
Volunteers should ensure that they have adequate funds as general spending money, as well as access to reserve funds in case of emergency. The Suggested Program can only recommend what you should take with.
The Volunteer’s CV or Resumé Form is the one of the key ways that we get to know you, and helps us select suitable placements for you. Once you have agreed upon a placement, your CV is sent to your potential host to introduce you before you arrive. In many cases volunteers ‘live in’ with host families. The personal information helps hosts to recognize your suitability as a volunteer, and helps them to assign tasks that you are most likely to enjoy. Therefore, it is very important that you provide as much personal detail as possible to include information about your hobbies and interests, your background, education and aims for the future, etc. This will help us (and your hosts) to gain a better understanding of your personality and skills, and so to select suitable placements for you.
Weekends usually involve cultural excursions or other group activities. Most projects welcome all types of motivated volunteers and do not require specific experience or skills to participate. We want our projects to be as accessible to all that want to spend time helping the world! Some projects especially have an additional fee payable on arrival to help subsidize the cost of the program for our partner organization. Volunteers arrange and pay for their own transportation for the project.
