During the past 40 years, Global Volunteers has helped employers:

fulfill corporate social responsibility goals

conduct effective team-building practices

improve employee morale and retention

learn about international markets

enable employees to engage with their cultural heritage

Employee Volunteer Time Off (VTO) is cited as a valued benefit stimulating meaningful community engagement and employee job satisfaction.

Most employees want to work for the “good guys.” Global Volunteers’ corporate and employee volunteering programs facilitate employees from around the globe, or in the next cubicle, to meet each other at a higher level, participate in practical team-building activities, and learn about their own or another culture. Our service programs enable board members, executives, managers, line workers, and their family members to discover together their capabilities outside their offices and, if desired, outside their comfort zones. Equally important, your employees provide meaningful service to local people while they learn personally about the limitations, opportunities, and realities of rural villages, emergent democracies, and struggling U.S. communities.

At the invitation of local leaders, employees apply their professional skills, knowledge, and experience on important community development projects while engaging in team-building and sharing their passion for service.

 “I’ve found the incentive to participate in service travel increases the level of satisfaction on the job. Our staff told us the trips are life-changing. They come back with a new perspective.”

“It’s an experience you keep forever.”

“I knew not to expect a traditional vacation, but I do want to express how impressed I was with Global Volunteers’ management of our trip.  I try not to have too many expectations prior to a volunteer trip, but those I did have were not just fulfilled, but exceeded.  I would recommend your program to anyone and especially to those new to this type of service program.”

 “I loved walking through the halls each day and seeing how excited the kids were that we were there! They wanted to say hello every chance they got and use their English!”
