“Travel For a Purpose”
Why Pay to Volunteer?
Our development partnerships rely on a steady stream of volunteers – of all backgrounds and skills. Global Volunteers supplies the volunteer recruitment and management for volunteer teams, which enables partner communities to fully benefit from the human and material resources these teams provide. Your tax-deductible contribution not only covers your own daily costs, but invests in these partnerships to sustain the important work from year to year. Over 33 years worldwide, we’ve refined this model to provide the best service to children and families.
