Dear friends,

Welcome to PLATO!

PLATO is the official PLAcement TOol for The Alliance. It is to use free of charge in a limited back office edition. However there is also a more advanced version which comes with a Front office version for the benefit of volunteers. An example is shown here: Advanced tool can be used by all Alliance members, associate members, Partners and Guests.

PLATO is the Official Placement Tool of The Alliance, and is currently used by 31 organisations:

ANEC, CBB, Chantiers Jeunesse, Citizen In Action, CIEE Japan, Cocat, Concordia UK, De Amicitia, Dreamwalker China, Egyesek, FIYE, IBG, IJGD, Grenzenlos, GSM, HUJ Armenia, IJCA, IWO, JAVVA, MS Denmark, VJF, SMILEngo, SIW Netherlands, Una Exchange, VFP USA, VSA Thailand, Workcamp Switzerland, World Friends, World4U, Xchange Scotland and YAP. More are to be announced.

If you want any of those organisations to send volunteers to your projects you need to insert or upload them in PLATO. Free of charge! All you need is a login and a password. If you dont have it, please write to PLATO project manager and we will provide you with one right away.

If you have questions, comments or simply just want to join, please write to

Best regards,
