Volunteer with Play360

We love volunteers! Join us on an upcoming project or use your special skill set to help us with any number of things from social media to universal playground design. You can start by filling out your Volunteer Interest Form here.

Providing this grassroots opportunity for you to be involved in a project is one of the ways that Play360 generates funds to cover project-related materials and expenses. We are happy to assist by providing you with proven fundraising ideas.

We understand people have many different personal circumstances and we will always work with you to make cost accessible, especially for families with multiple people intending to travel. We would hate to see funding get in the way of your experience and to the extent possible will work with you to make your participation possible. For this reason we offer two ways to join a project:

Option 1: Participants are responsible for their own travel and transportation, lodging, and most meal expenses. We ask for a $500 USD program donation (per person) which, in additional to helping cover direct program and materials costs, provides all volunteers with a mid-morning snack, lunch on construction days, and opening and closing dinners. We are happy to provide contact information (and in some cases help coordinate) logistics or reservations for rental cars, hotels, tours, and more. We find this is a good option for experienced travelers.

Option 2: For those who would prefer, Play360 offers a more inclusive package and will handle all in-country logistics including airport transfers, lodging, and local transportation (plus the meals mentioned above). Participants are still responsible for their own international airfare and personal incidental items. The cost for this varies by trip, please contact us for project-specific information.
