How frequently do you put out a call for applications?

We have openings all year round, although each organization has a preferred hosting period. You should check every single opening here . 

What is the duration of the experience?

Our international missions approximately last from 1 to 3 months. However, the volunteer and the hosting organization can agree on a different duration. Extension of the timeframe may be evaluated from case to case (based on host organization needs, feedback, and participant will)  for both online and on-site experience (or even mixed, e.g. starting on-site and extending the collaboration offline).

 Is there a guide that can advise me on where to live and the most important aspects of the area?

Every partner has an info pack with all the relevant info for your staying. Furthermore, some partners provide a guest house or can help you to look for an affordable room.

What kind of job will I have?

You will be working on projects related to social innovation and social entrepreneurship. Specifically, research, data collection, and business analysis, management, design, IT and communication, architecture, and urban development are examples of activities. Discover all of SITGlobal opportunities in our website.

Are there any promotions or special initiatives?

Yes, we have special initiatives, which are communicated via our social media, newsletters and on the website. The #bringafriend promotion is now active and if you travel with another person you will both get a €50 discount.
