Your Skills Change Children’s Futures!

Children are the future – help them reach their full potential. By sharing what you know for one or two weeks on a Global Volunteers service program, you can initiate life-long change. Since 1987, Global Volunteers has engaged professionals, retirees, students, families, and individuals of all ages in sustaining development at the ground level. We invite you to contribute your skills to projects that help children learn, grow, and develop at the time when they need it most – in the first 1,000 days.

Give. Care. Explore. Be a Global Volunteer.

Every day is a new adventure in service working under the direction of our community partners. Help children reach their full potential through preschool instruction and care, primary school tutoring, secondary school mentoring, programs for pregnant women and children, and by helping to repair and improve community buildings – while experiencing all the color, music, art and flavor of the local culture. Travel with us – a long-standing non-profit leader in worldwide volunteering.

And, consider this: Your program and travel costs are tax-deductible! One to three week itineraries, including lodging, food, local transportation, project materials and a trained team leader are available year-round. There’s no other experience like this to truly make a significant difference in the world!
