Our story

Where it all started

Vina Volunteer Service (VVS) is the first company in Vietnam, to deliver a variety of volunteer placements for volunteers in Vietnam, in the hope that we can support the community development and promote natural conservation.

From 2001, a youth volunteer club was founded call Green Youth Club included more than 100 members throughout Vietnam. Green Youth Volunteer Club is operated by youth who aim to organize volunteer activities for youths all over  Vietnam. After that, we established long-term relationships with many orphanage centers, associations and a number of  national parks in Vietnam. From time to time, we cooperate with many NGOs all over the world to became a reliable host organization with many volunteer placements in Vietnam in term of volunteering programs for community development.

Vina Volunteer Service Today

As a teenager become an adult, with experienced staff and leaders, Green Youth Club became Vina Volunteer Service Ltd (VVS) . We would like to offer worldwide volunteer services. With our experiences and long-lasting relationships with partners at the projects site all over Vietnam, we would like to offer more opportunities for both international volunteers and local organizations  to achieve their goals. We also have  staff working all over Vietnam at the project site from the North to the South.

Through our volunteer placements at the project sites, where they share a day in the life experience of local people while working in their particular community, side by side, the volunteer will be rewarded with learning quite a bit about themselves and their role on this planet. Most leave with their life’s compass pointing clear and strong to a new direction in their lives.

Furthermore, as a reliable organization in Vietnam for volunteers from all over the world, we focus on offering participants best of the best, who come to Vietnam to do volunteer work and travel responsibly. Through our programs and projects, volunteer not only get new experiences in a new country, but also feel pleased with their philosophy and their purpose of traveling.

Vietnam is beautiful, diverse, and exotic, and the people are so friendly. Your time here will be spent safely, surrounded by a community grateful for your presence.

Vina Volunteer Service in the community development

We help to create local jobs.  Our project has been implemented at many sites in Vietnam. Volunteers come to help local people, they not only bring their knowledge and experience but also the hope, and drive to improve the economy of the local community

We have so many colleagues all over Vietnam,  so  that we have an extensive network of local knowledge, enabling us to channel the skills of our volunteers to places in which people really need.

Cultural exchange and gain local experiences in a new land for absolutely free

Taking part in one of the VVS’s placements, volunteers can learn from the people which they meet and teh environment they live in. Mutual learning and mutual respect is what cultural exchange is all about.

We welcome approaches from potential partners – universities, schools and institutes, sending organizations and individuals; we will arrange the most suitable placements which meet their needs and their willingness. We also highly appreciate contributions from participants; if you want to do volunteer work, just tell us what you expect and we would love to hear from you. We believe that flexibility on our part is necessary to respect our partners and  participants..
