Placement Fee

placement fee!
In some cases, a placement will have to take on certain expenses in order to host a volunteer. For example, some medical internship placements take time away from paid medical staff to help with educational assistance. This has a cost that is compensated by a placement fee. In other cases, the organization may have to pay for additional equipment, energy consumption or other expense in order to put a volunteer to work. In such cases, the organizaiton charges a fee. This fee is paid directly to the organization in cash on the ground. One of the reasons that we keep this fee separate from the Admin and Program fee is so that volunteers who do not pay us for accommodation, meals etc (Program Fees), will see that they will still have to make this payment directly to the organizaiton upon their arrival.
