Short-Term Volunteer Abroad Opportunities
We’re serious about service. Global Volunteers is a human and economic development organization that engages short-term volunteers to help families and local organizations meet their development objectives. Many organizations offer some form of volunteer abroad opportunities, or service-learning experience. Some are only one day or even a few hours. Very few are week(s)-long full-day community development programs. The end result is that some day-programs can actually exploit the people you hope to help. At best, they can inconvenience the community, and at worst, harm children and their families. Global Volunteers excels in several areas which ensures that your short-term volunteer abroad , or USA opportunities extend ethical, genuine service to the local community and teaches you to be a responsible volunteer.
