Registration and Program Fees

Registration Fee

AIAV’s registration fee is US $165, which is due upon completing your registration.

What does the registration fee cover?

AIAV is a non-profit organization, and at the moment does not have a sponsor to absorb its operational costs. In order for it to continue providing its services and spread its wings, you’re required to pay a registration fee which will help with:

    1. Maintaining a secure and informative website.
    2. Advertising.
    3. Pre-departure and general support until completion of your program.
    4. Project visits.
    5. Overall quality control.
    6. Administrative work.
    7. $20 set aside as contribution into the AIAV Endowment Fund. The AIAV Endowment Fund is created to timely support our projects abroad, and provide scholarships and awards to support, highlight, and encourage the efforts of our volunteers.
