Terms and Conditions

All donations are made to YourStory International, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, as agreed to by all volunteers upon sign-up and by all donors upon donation, are non-refundable in all circumstances unless otherwise stated. If a volunteer or chapter elects not to participate in an expedition, or if their chapter is cancelled  the funds donated will continue to be utilized for their intended purpose to further YourStory Internationals’ mission. 


*This policy is effective December 1st, 2017, and applies to all donations made on or after this date.  


YourStory Internationals’ number one priority is volunteer safety. In rare scenarios, YSI may have to cancel expeditions due to events beyond our control, which may include, but are not limited to natural disasters, endemic and pandemic disease, and political unrest. 


If your expedition is canceled, we will do our best to help reschedule your expedition to possibly a new date. If you are unable to participate in the rescheduled expedition of your choice, the funds will be utilized for their intended purpose to further YourStory Internationals’ mission.
