Volunteer as a Family – Expand Your Global Perspective

BE GLOBAL VOLUNTEERS.

Everyone can volunteer as a family:  Parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren, nieces and nephews with aunts and uncles – even adult siblings.  You can explore another culture – on an unforgettable adventure in service together. Care for children, support elders, plant gardens, paint classrooms, tutor students and so much more. Best yet, your costs are tax-deductible! When you travel the world as a volunteer, you make a difference in your life and in the lives of those you serve.

Learn how to volunteer as a family.

Encourage your family members to volunteer with you. Share this video with them!

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.
