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: PLATO 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 39 organisations:

ANEC, CBB, Chantiers Jeunesse, Citizen in Action, CIEE Japan, Cocat, Colorful House, Concordia France, Concordia UK, De Amicitia, Dreamwalker China, Egyesek, FIYE, GREAT Indonesia, IBG, IJGD, Grenzenlos, GSM, IJCA, Inex Czech Republic, IWO, JAVVA, MS Denmark, NiG, Passage Zebra, Subir al Sur, SVI Spain, VJF, VSS, SIW Netherlands, VFP USA, VPV Vietnam, WCIA, WeCollab, Worldwide Friends, World4U, Xchange Scotland, YAP and Youth for Smile. 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 partner from one of the organisations above and we will provide you with a login and a password. .

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