Any questions?

Generally you will be expected to help around 5 hours per day in exchange for food and accommodation. Some hosts may give a paid allowance to ensure they are offering at least the minimum wage in their country. Conditions and agreements may vary depending on the skills you can offer and the requirements of each host. It is important you communicate as much as possible beforehand with your hosts so that you both know each other's expectations.
You must be 18 years old to register for a profile. The minimum age for volunteering in most countries is 18. Minors accompanied with their parents are also accepted on some family projects.
Yes, but each member of the group must have their own Workaway profile. You can connect your accounts so hosts know you are travelling together.

Workaway is primarily for cultural exchange or learning new skills and a way of making new friends.

If a host is looking for help with a business or business activity, they may offer payment to ensure that they are meeting the minimum wage requirements of their country.

Where a host is offering payment this will be clearly marked on their profile.

At Workaway we strive to provide our members with the right tools to make informed decisions regarding who they interact with online and in real life. While we do check every profile that is created, we don't routinely perform background checks, though we do reserve the right to. Host profiles must meet all of our requirements before we will put them online. Workaway is a tool to facilitate contact, we do not act as agents.
