How is this different from a volunteering or freelance work portal?
Zentopia is a curated platform. We handpick opportunities that would appeal to someone who is looking to go off the beaten track. All oportunities are structured with a defined duration, skills required and expected outcome.
Do you conduct any verification checks for an orgnization before uploading an opportunity offerered by them?
No we do not conduct a verification check before listing an organization. Before visiting a place, we encourage you to evaluate for yourself how suitable and safe the place is.
If I apply for an opportunity, is it confirmed that I will get selected?
No. After you apply for an opportunity, it will be at the discretion of the organization to make the selection.
Will I get paid?
Not all opportunities on the platform pay. Some will cover accomodation and/or other expenses while some may not include any compensation. You will need to read through the listings to find out the compensation details.
