Applications for Positions
You are required to submit the listed deposit upon submitting your application for a Position. If your application is accepted, the deposit will be paid to the Company; if your application is rejected, your deposit will be refunded to you within 10 days.
If your application for a Position is accepted, the deposit is non-refundable except at the discretion of the Company. The Company may consider requests for a refund of the deposit if you cannot complete the Position for reasons outside of your control. If you simply choose not to accept the Position after you apply, however, the Company will not refund your deposit.
Process After Acceptance of Application
Once your application is accepted by a Provider, you should work directly with the Provider to work out all additional details, including dates, travel logistics, responsibilities, proof of credentials, vaccines needed, supplies or materials to bring, and any other information you may need. Any additional payment required for the Position shall be paid by you directly to the Provider using the Provider’s payment processor. Any payments made by you for the Position are between you and the party to whom the payment was made, so all refund requests should be made accordingly. The Company is not responsible for any travel logistics or payments made after your application is submitted and the deposit is paid.
The Company takes moderate steps to ensure that Providers are real organizations, but it does not screen, verify, or monitor any individuals associated with Providers or who post on the Website on behalf of Providers, nor does it verify the Positions posted on the Website. Therefore, you are responsible for conducting research on the Provider to ensure that the Provider and Position will fit your needs and meet your expectations. The Company does not make any guarantees or promises regarding any Provider or Position.

IF YOU FEEL UNSAFE OR HAVE AN EMERGENCY SITUATION WHILE PERFORMING OR OTHERWISE CONNECTED TO A POSITION, CONTACT LOCAL EMERGENCY SERVICES IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT EVER CONTACT THE COMPANY IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION.
Issues with Providers
If an issue arises between you and a Provider before you begin the Position, the Company invites you to contact us so we can try to assist in mediating the issue. The Company may offer you a refund of your deposit at its sole discretion, but refunds of any other payments must be discussed directly with the payment recipient.
If any issues arise between you and a Provider after you begin the Position, you must contact the Provider or local authorities to resolve the issue. The Company does not have the capacity to assist you in any Position location, so before starting any Position you should ensure that you have the resources and information needed if an issue arises. The Company provides a platform for you to find and arrange volunteer positions, but is not liable for any issues, damages, or harm arising or resulting from any volunteer position that you choose to accept.
