Encounter a wide world of history and culture through service-learning. Global Volunteers’ high school volunteer abroad and USA programs enable students to discover their skills and strengths as they learn first-hand about the wider world. Gain on-the-ground experience for one to two weeks through tutoring, childcare and labor. Contribute valuable assistance to ongoing development programs integral to our community partners’ success and gain skills for broad social contributions after graduation.
As an international NGO, we’ve worked with over 130 academic institutions since 1984 on high school and college service-learning agendas. Our safety record and itineraries are rated among the best. We collaborate with faculty, student service committees and campus organizations on your school’s goals for cultural immersion with measurable outcomes.
High school volunteer abroad projects during winter and spring break, and over summer vacation bridge the knowledge “gap” between academics and real life. We’ll collaborate with you to meet your group’s individual needs. We’ll certify volunteer service hours so your student group can meet study abroad, service-learning or class requirements. We’ll help you investigate academic credit through independent study and research. Our development programs expand students’ global perspectives beyond international borders.
