Emisari: Fast Facts

Emisari is an online marketplace that makes it easy for people wanting volunteer experiences to:

  • Connect with organizations they resonate with
  • Book their trip directly with the organization
  • And pay in one seamless experience

Emisari provides organizations with a way to make a consistent revenue stream through their volunteer programs and provides the tools needed to manage their programs more efficiently.

We organize the volunteer world into one platform, creating a bigger impact and giving people the opportunity to have life changing experiences by helping others.

Massive Problem

The volunteer world is disorganized and people who have the desire to volunteer abroad often find themselves confused and lose confidence in booking their trip in the process.

There isn’t a:

  • Scalable
  • Recognized
  • And trusted platform that makes it easy for people to find volunteer experiences.
  • Nor is there one that gives organizations the help they need to manage their volunteer programs. 

Organizations too often lack volunteers with the proper skills. They have to constantly raise funds for their programs and continuously find volunteers to help keep their projects afloat.

One Incredible Solution

Emisari solves these problems by organizing the volunteer world like the hotel and tourism industry, allowing for greater transparency and ease of use when searching for a volunteer experience. We:

  • Are cheaper for both volunteers paying and organizations receiving funds directly to their bank accounts.
  • Give organizations the power to choose the volunteers they want, set their own program fees, and choose what services they offer.
  • Get rid of the middleman and allow volunteers to connect directly with organizations to understand the real purpose of their trip.

How It Works  for Organizations

How It Works for Volunteers

Important Features

  • Volunteers can message the organization directly, allowing them to ask questions before booking their trip. No other platform offers direct communication between organizations and volunteers.
  • Volunteers pay for their trip on our platform. The money is sent directly to the organization's bank account, anywhere in the world, at lower fees than traditional banks.
  • Organizations can follow an easy process to create their listings. They have 100% control of what they offer and need, making it clear for volunteers.

Cancelation Policies: Emisari has put cancelation policies in place to build trust on the platform, by protecting both the volunteers and the organizations.

  • Organizations can select the policy they wish to uphold for people who reserve their trips ranging from Flexible to Strict, each giving the volunteer a window of time to cancel their trip and receive a full refund.
  • Likewise, the volunteer may be refunded if the organization cancels for certain reasons.

Organizations have a Calendar tool to help them manage incoming volunteers and easily see how many spots they have available in each program.

The Progress tool shows organizations how many volunteers and how much revenue they bring in each month.

The Listings tool allows organizations to manage their programs and make changes when needed.

The Favorites tool allows volunteers to create lists of their favorite programs and the My Trips tool lets volunteers see all upcoming and past trips made.

Why We Will Lead

Our business model and platform allows for cheaper volunteer trips and greater scalability.

Volunteers can connect directly with nonprofits, allowing them to communicate and trust each other.

Emisari lets volunteers search for specific trips while also creating a better structure for organizations to manage their volunteer programs.

Emisari has an organized, dedicated team who knows the space and understands problems both volunteers and organizations face better than anyone else.

  • Over 9 years of collective experience in volunteer work amongst the founders.
  • Team members have volunteer experience and are committed to achieving milestones
