Volunteer Abroad Programs
Work side-by-side with people from all over the world on a GVI project and you will discover that people on our volunteer abroad programs come from all walks of life to achieve a shared goal: to help communities and the natural environment by building sustainable systems that last for generations to come.
With GVI, the leaders you work with on the ground are living and working at our locations year-round. This brings continuity to our volunteer abroad programs and ensures the impact and the longevity of our projects.
Our volunteer abroad programs are run in conjunction with local community members who drive and guide our planning and decision-making. We run over 100 volunteer abroad programs that are globally renowned for sustainability and for providing safe and inspiring experiences.
Find yourself on an African reserve tracking a cheetah, or deep in crystal blue waters studying marine habitats of turtles, or at a monetary teaching a class full of young Buddhist monks. Our volunteer abroad programs are profound places of discovery, full of awe-inspiring observations and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
