Your help is needed and wanted wherever you serve, because we always work at the invitation of community partners, and under the direction of local leaders. This means  you’ll serve on full-day projects, five days a week.

Your service program contribution, airfare and visa are tax-deductible under this itinerary. But, that’s not all!  You’ll have plenty of free time in the evenings for community activities, and on weekends to explore local attractions. Open the door to new opportunities, and learn how significant your life experiences are in our partner communities.  Enlarge your perspective.  Engage the world for good!

“My ten trips with Global Volunteers have added whole new meaning and purpose to my life, in my retirement after 45 years as a graphic designer. Each one’s been totally worth every penny – plus all expenses are tax deductible! Previous experience is not necessary. I urge curious travelers to go.”

“I’ll never forget walking with my wife Jilonne down the streets and hearing “Gerald, Gerald,” and seeing a young man from one of our high school classes wave and run forward to ask me to come meet his grandmother, saying ‘these are the people who are helping me speak American.”

“As a lifelong learner, I’ve been either a student, a teacher or both my entire life.  Since I retired from active employment several years ago, I have enjoyed the freedom to not only continue my roles as student and teacher but also to expand them in service to others.”

Gloria Gibbs10-time Global Volunteer

“Being a servant to others, giving my time and talents with no requirement for anything in return, was very rewarding.  Almost everyone I met in one way or another thanked me just for coming there.”
