The International Volunteer Committee consists of individuals interested in facilitating placement of volunteers in the host communities with which DGH works.
We meet for a one-hour conference call 10 times a year; generally on Sunday evenings at 9PM EST. Requirements for being a DGH-IVC member are the following:
DGH is active in the following communities as of the writing of this document.
When an application is submitted, Committee members review the information, discuss the applicant at monthly meetings and approve, disapprove or approve with qualifications (e.g. language, time commitment changes, etc.), communicate with Site Coordinators of the various sites, and send a full acceptance packet, which includes pre-volunteering information. Site Coordinators communicate with the host communities to make arrangements and serve as liaisons between the volunteers and the host communities. Volunteers are required to become DGH members, have appropriate health and evacuation insurance and sign a legal waiver.
If you are interested in being part of the DGH International Volunteer Committee, please contact the IVC Coordinator.
