Would you like to travel to another country and share your skills with a local community for as little as one week or as long as 40 weeks? Global Volunteers mobilizes more than 2500 volunteers annually on work projects, assisting more than 100 host communities in 20 countries on six continents through volunteer service, direct project funding, and child sponsorships.
Working at the invitation and under the direction of local leaders, volunteers are able to live and work with local people, teaching conversational English, providing health care services, caring for vulnerable children, as well as painting, building, and repairing community buildings.
In 1984, Global Volunteers laid the foundation for what became known a decade later as volunteer vacations. It is a private, nonprofit, non-sectarian international development organization working in partnership with local people worldwide. This is the ultimate way to travel around the world with a purpose and really make a difference.
