You’ve already done something extraordinary by becoming a Global Volunteer. The children around the world who rely on others to support and teach them are closer to reaching their full potential because of your generous help. You can continue to help them – exponentially. It’s as easy as sharing your unique story of service! In return, we’ll work with you to help you earn your next service program – simply by sharing your experiences and memories with friends, colleagues, neighbors, family members and others in your social network. Everyone wins – new volunteers you refer, our community partners, and you – on a fast track to a new adventure in service with Global Volunteers!
Terms and Conditions for Alumni Program Credits and Discounts:
- Only new contacts earn the Referral Credit and Discount. The Referral Credit is not earned and the Referral Discount does not apply if the referred person(s) exists in the Global Volunteers database before you give us their name(s).
- The Referral Credit is available 29 days prior to the date the referred person is scheduled to serve, provided they have paid their service program fee in full and they are not serving on the same service program as you.

Or, you may give your friend, colleague, or family member a Referral Discount when they serve with you, but then you forfeit the Referral Credit upon your return home. You earn the Refer a Friend Credit when you refer a first-time Global Volunteer and s/he is not serving on the same service program as you.
