Volunteer in Bali

Do you want to explore beautiful, culturally rich Bali and volunteer abroad to help those in need? Would you like to discover a higher calling while you explore beautiful Bali? Check out the volunteer programs in Bali and change your life forever.

Rich in colorful culture and traditions, Bali is a breathtaking island in Indonesia. Perfect weather with year-round sun make it easy to explore the lovely beaches featuring world-class surfing. Exotic, ancient temples blanket the country from the mountains to the coasts, making for a sightseeing paradise. Alongside the warmth of the Balinese people, Bali is known for some of the best food in the world.

In spite of its status as a sought-after tourist destination, one-third of the Balinese people live in poverty. The people in rural areas, away from the tourist developments, who suffer the most, lacking access to adequate education, electricity, and sanitation. Income from agriculture is falling as the cost of living rises, and wealth inequality grows. Arable land in the south is being developed for tourism, leaving the remaining, less-desirable and drier land in the northern and eastern parts of the country for farming.

Today, Bali needs volunteers more than ever.

You can help when you join a volunteer-abroad program in Bali. You can choose to work with children in a daycare center or teach English. There is also a unique project that combines work in sea-turtle conservation with teaching languages to Balinese children in a local primary school.

Create lasting change in the lives and communities of those who need you when you volunteer in Bali.

While volunteering in Bali, Global Crossroad's weekly fees include management of volunteers' meal plans and accommodations throughout projects. Two meals a day (breakfast and dinner) will be provided and consist of local ingredients and feature traditional cuisine choices for Bali.

Food and drinks outside of meal times (lunch and snacks) are the volunteer's responsibility. In most cases, there are restaurants and markets nearby the places in which our volunteers stay during their volunteer work in Bali timeframe.

During your volunteer opportunity in Bali, we normally place our volunteers in a hostel or with a host family for a homestay depending on project location. Your accommodations will always be in a safe area and you will have the basic necessities available to you.

Specific details regarding accommodations, food, and contact details for our local coordinator will be provided in personalized volunteer placement documentation prior to your arrival for your Bali volunteer experience.

Safety and Field Support

Our number #1 priority is the safety of our volunteers. Global Crossroad is a leading volunteer organization serving thousands of volunteers. We pride ourselves on providing the safest, highest quality, and most professional programs to our volunteers since 2003. Our dedicated team works closely from start to finish with each volunteer (and parents/guardians) to ensure a successful, satisfactory, and safe volunteering experience.

Below is a list of our safety and field support features that will demonstrate the level of support and safety each of you will receive while volunteering abroad.

1. Country Coordinator and Field Staff :

In each country, where we operate, we have a very strong and dedicated team of country coordinators and local staff members to support and take care of you. All of our country coordinators and field staff are highly experienced and responsible individuals. They have been running volunteer abroad program for many years. They have served thousands of volunteers, so they understand your needs and know how to run safe, rewarding, and meaningful volunteer abroad program for you.

Our In-country staff is responsible for a number of things. Below are some of the main services that they will provide:

  • Airport pick-up and transfer to host family or work site
  • Management of room and food in host family/hostel
  • Orientation of local country, culture, host family, safety, and related issues
  • Introduction to your host family and project staff
  • Periodic follow up visits or calls (1-2 week intervals) to ensure everything is going smoothly
  • Advice for solving any issues, problems, or concerns
2. Airport Greeting

We are dedicated to keeping you save and comfortable from your point of your arrival until your point of departure. We will always receive our volunteers at the airport and transfer them safely. Depending upon the country in which you choose to volunteer, our coordinator, local staff, or a professional transfer company employee will greet you at the airport.

3. Orientation and safety discussion

Regardless of where you join the Global Crossroad volunteer program, our program starts with an in depth discussion on safety, history, cultural people, religion, life, and do’s and don’ts. Depending upon the country, these orientation programs range from a few hours to three days. During orientation, we explain the different aspect of safety and general guidelines to help keep yourself safe while volunteering abroad.

4. Safe Host Family and Accommodation

While volunteering abroad, the majority of the time you will reside with a local host family, hostel, or similar accommodation. We always carefully select the host families and other forms of accommodations to make sure that you will be safe and comfortable. In all destinations, we have selected host families who are socially respected and responsible. Most of our host families have hosted international volunteers before, so they completely understand your needs. Your host family will always take care of you and keep you safe.

Similarly, all of our volunteer houses and hostels are located in very safe locations. These hostels are always guarded by security guards or supervised by the local staff very frequently to make sure that you are safe and secure. Also you will be staying with other volunteers from all over the world. You will never be alone.

5. Comprehensive Insurance and Evacuation Plan

While volunteering abroad, you will be covered by international insurance. This protects you in case something unforeseen happens. It is mandatory that all volunteers obtain a travel insurance policy when volunteering abroad. Global Crossroad offers one of the most comprehensive insurance packages from a third party. Our insurance policy provides excellent protection in the event that a health-related issue occurs, an accident, or other unpredictable incidences.

6. Placement with Other Volunteers

Global Crossroad is happy to place you with other volunteers (depending on availability) if this is something that would make you feel safer.

Any international travel requires caution and awareness; volunteering abroad is no exception. We suggest that all volunteers consult their own government advisory office before making the decision to participate in any overseas volunteering opportunities. International travel presents risks, especially with the modern day threat of international terrorism.

The U.S. State Department issues travel warnings and advisories in many countries for American travelers. These travel advisories and warnings frequently change, as situations in each country transform.

These links provide valuable travel information:

It is also wise to consult the Center for Disease Control for health related information and issues that might come up during your time volunteering abroad. Check out www.cdc.gov for possible health risks. One must also keep in mind that the sanitary conditions in developing countries are likely very different from those in your home country. It is also strongly advised that you do not drink the tap water and do not eat food from street vendors.
