Here‘s Where You’re Most Needed – Children and Families Await Your Assistance

We’re almost there! Help us respond to pressing requests.

If you are the type of person who wants to make an immediate impact around the world, join Global Volunteers today.

Check out the highlighted programs below to learn about the partner communities that need you most now. Help meet program volunteer minimums so that we can fulfill our commitment to our host community and its children and families. Some of these programs are in jeopardy of being cancelled (due to low numbers of volunteers), but your participation can ensure the program is confirmed! Others require your assistance with special projects only offered during a specific time frame, which will truly make a difference in the daily lives of the local people we serve. Without you, these programs can’t happen.

Thank you for your prompt attention to our call. We look forward to hearing from you soon! Call 800-487-1074 to register. Or, contact us below.

Please take a moment to answer these questions so that we can best help you.


We will immediately direct your inquiry to our Group Coordinator, who will contact you shortly. In addition, please answer the following:



Great! We will direct your question to your volunteer coordinator. Click Next Page button below to continue.

Global Volunteers is a U.S. based NGO in the central time zone (UTC -6). Because tax-deductibility, visa requirements, and language proficiencies vary, please choose the country you’re inquiring from to enable us to provide you the most appropriate information.



Thank you for your interest in a development partnership with Global Volunteers. We're unable to expand our programs at this time. As our website portrays, our current service programs center around providing the 12 Essential Services for our Reaching Children's Potential Program. But for future reference, please send any information to: partnershiprequest@globalvolunteers.org


As a private, non-profit organization independent from government and religious funding, Global Volunteers’ programs are financed almost entirely by volunteer contributions. This is important because our community partners cannot afford the “open market” costs of the services and materials we provide. Your tax-deductible service program contribution pays your expenses in the partner community. These include your food, lodging, work site transportation, program materials, team leadership, emergency evacuation insurance, and administrative costs. In addition, we provide supplemental financing to help meet our host’s many, on-going and special needs.


While English fluency does not disqualify you from participating on any of our programs, Global Volunteers is a U.S based NGO with your teammates, training materials and other communications being conduced primarily in English.

We’re unable to provide any assistance in obtaining your passport or visa. You'll need a passport to travel abroad and for some countries, you’ll need a visa.  Please keep this in mind when planning your travel schedule. If you live outside the U.S., you may have additional restrictions for participating on U.S. programs.

To provide you with information to match your specific interests, please tell us a little about you:




Many employers help cover part of the service program contribution. Providing this information can help us determine if this is available to you.



Our volunteer coordinators are available from 8:30AM to 4:30PM Central Time and will email you during that time on the next business day. If you prefer, you may chat now, or call 651-407-6100 if you’re inquiring during office hours.

Please choose up to 4 program locations and projects that interest you.
