Your role balances upon three critical touchpoints – clear and appropriate expectations about appropriate help, guidance from our local partners and team leaders, and expert program management by community development experts. Global Volunteers has you covered!
First, our volunteer coordinator helps you choose the best program for your skills and schedule. You “hit the ground running” with our pre-departure skills inventory, a “how to” volunteer manual, and project reports from previous teams. Second, on site, you join a cohesive, project-oriented team assigned to sustainable work projects based upon your combined skills. Third, our proprietary team-building process maintains momentum. Our team leaders are Global Volunteers staff and alumni, extensively trained in volunteer engagement, health and safety, host relations, community project management, and most important – delivering the 12 Essential Services to children and families worldwide. Together with our dedicated and resourceful host partners, we leverage your expertise to the greatest benefit of the community.
