Wherever your passions and wanderlust lie, your options with GVI are endless!

 

No matter whether you are on a gap year from school, a student, on a career break or on an extended holiday, there is important work for you to be involved in, as you make an important contribution to the education of these students.

 

If you are studying, speak to our Country Experts about receiving academic credit. Our Programmes don’t just give you hands-on practical skills, but can also contribute towards your university or college qualification.

 

 

GVI’s volunteers play a vital part in the success and long-term sustainability of our teaching projects. With the support of our volunteers, GVI and our partner organisations are able to provide these children with a safe environment and the support, supervision, socialisation and education in a range of subjects including English, Maths, Art and Sport.
