Service Program Discounts*
Volunteers make all the difference in development worldwide! We work to enable you to serve our partner communities. We ensure our service program fees reflect our actual costs – to maintain our partnerships and to support you on site. Whenever we save time and money, we offer discounts. Please note that you may combine the returning volunteer and family/multi-person discounts; the student and 12-and-under discounts may not be combined with other discounts.
Alumni Volunteers: We offer alumni (returning volunteers) a $200 discount on international service programs and a $50 discount on USA service programs in recognition of continued service with Global Volunteers. Ask your volunteer coordinator for details. This may be combined with the Companion/Family Discount. Click here to learn more about our Alumni Program.
Students: Service early in life leads to life-long service. We want to promote service by students and offer a $200 discount on international programs and $50 on USA programs. Provide a photocopy of your current student I.D. card and fee statement showing you are a full time student. This may not be combined with any other discounts.
Companions/Family Members: For each first-time volunteer companion (paying the standard fee) you bring on your international service program, you are eligible for a $200 discount (up to $800 for four companions) on your service program fee. (We allow $100-$400 for USA service programs). This discount is not available with the student discount. Additional savings are offered for groups of six or more.
Children 12 and Under: Volunteer with your family! During the months of March, June, July, August and December, the standard international service program fee is discounted 50% for children 6-12. Each program has minimum age requirements. One parent/guardian must accompany each child. This discount cannot be combined with any other discounts.
*The India service program fee already includes all discounts, so alumni, student, companion, referral, presentation, and <13 discounts do not apply to India service program fees. However, referral credits can be applied toward India service program fees.
