What are Workaway Badges?

Workaway Badges are digital symbols of your accomplishments and experiences on the Workaway platform. They are designed to celebrate your journey as a traveller or host and showcase your growth along the way. If you're a seasoned globetrotter, or a first-time explorer, Workaway Badges provide a fun and engaging way to track your progress and share your story!

Why Should You Collect Workaway Badges?

Showcase Your Experiences

Whether you’ve acquired valuable skills from volunteering at a farmstay, mastered new languages by staying with host families, or become an animal whisperer while helping out at animal welfare projects – with more experiences you gain, the more good ratings you’ll earn from hosts which your badges will reflect !
