About

Volunteers in Vietnam find a large and diverse land. Nearly the size of Germany, Vietnam is known for its natural beauty. Miles of sparkling coastline blend seamlessly with the Mountains that cover three-fourths of the land. Vietnam’s complex political history is now focused on economic development as a national priority. Sports are popular in Vietnam, as is good food! Pho, spring rolls and green tea are must-haves. With history dating back thousands of years, temples, historic sites and traditions abound. Volunteers here are often surprised by temperatures that vary from extreme cold in the mountains to hot and humid in the central regions.

United Planet is the US and Canadian partner of the International Cultural Youth Exchange, or ICYE. As a volunteer in Vietnam, you will be hosted by Volunteers for Peace Vietnam, ICYE’s Vietnamese partner organization. VPV started in 2005 with the aim to promote international voluntary service as a means of cultural and educational exchange among people - for peace, friendship and understanding.
