How Much Does It Cost?

How much does it cost? Lattitude Global Volunteering

We pride ourselves on our professionalism, international expertise, and above all, the support we offer our volunteers and their families. As a non-profit organisation, we aim to keep the costs involved as low as possible without compromising on the value, quality and safety of every volunteer’s experience.


Costs for “Country Immersion” programmes:

(All destinations listed under “Where Can I Go“)

Lattitude Application Fee – $150

The application fee covers the cost of processing applications and conducting interviews.
Whenever possible, we like to travel to your area to interview you in person, but if not possible, video conferencing is an alternative.
All applicants are guaranteed an interview. This fee is non-refundable.

Lattitude Placement Fee – $3945

The Lattitude placement fee covers your preparation & support prior to departure as well as in-country support whilst on placement. This is payable in two installments:
Upon acceptance to the Lattitude programme, a non-refundable $1000 deposit is payable within 7-10 days.
The balance of your Lattitude fee is payable 60 days prior to departure.

Orientation – $650

Volunteers receive an informative group orientation upon arrival in their placement country.
This includes sightseeing, accommodation, meals, safety & security briefings, an overview of the local culture & customs, basic language skills (where relevant), assistance with such things as SIM cards, banking, and other handy tips. Teaching skills courses may also take place where relevant, and are included in this fee.

Ecuador is the one exception here – the fee for Orientation on our Ecuador programme is $950, as it includes a one week Spanish language course and homestay accommodation.
