Worldwide Friends


The main activity in our organization is organizing and coordinating workcamps with volunteers from all over the world.

Our workcamps are a place where people of all origins, ideologies and nationalities can live and work together for 10 days up to 2 weeks on a project hosted by a local community or by WF. We organize these camps in different places in Iceland. Our camps take place all year round. Each camp has its own individuality, different day activities and goals. You can participate in such workcamp as a short-term volunteer or a long-term volunteer.

Take charge and volunteer with us!


As a short-term volunteer you participate in a project that you can choose from the list. Every project has its own theme, goals and day activities where you will participate with 6 to 25 other volunteers.

They are a multicultural voluntary team led by a minimum of two work camp leaders.


If you want to stay longer than 2 weeks, you can take part as an long-term volunteer. This program can last 3 months, 6 months (mostly recommended) or a year. Your most important tasks are to organize and coordinate worcamps as a work camp leader or take part in the office to bookkeep, plan projects, keep in touch with the intercultural cooperation, etc.
