AIAV Terms and Conditions

AIAV Service

AIAV is a Canada-based international non-profit volunteer placement organization that offers meaningful, safe, and responsible volunteer placements in developing countries. These placements provide volunteer services for a number of carefully selected projects in such fields as education, caregiving, medical placements, and sports, etc. for students, professionals, groups, and families.

Registration and Project Fees

AIAV requires all volunteers to register online and pay a stipulated registration fee, sum as per the website. This registration fee is valid until the completion of the project.

The project fee, sum as per the website, is paid directly to our partner organizations at least 30 days before the start of the project.

Fee Changes

Fee change notifications will be posted in AIAV’s Newsletter 2 weeks prior to the change of prices. Volunteers who have already registered will not be affected by the change.

Cancellation Policy

AIAV will refund 50% of the registration fee if you decide to cancel the registration within 30 days after registering. There is 0% refund after the 30 days expire.

Project fees are never refundable because once you pay the fee, your money is put to use to make arrangements for your welcoming.

Cancellation is only accepted in a written and signed format. Cancellation over the phone is not accepted.
