summer volunteeringVolunteer holidays with GVI offer individuals, families and groups the opportunity to give back in a meaningful, sustainable way, while exploring some of the world’s most remote and beautiful locations!

GVI has a range of short term projects based around the world, which combine volunteer work, cultural and adventure excursions, language immersion and much more! Picture yourself surrounded by the Himalayas, working in a local care centre or in the beautiful Mexican Yucatan peninsula, volunteering on a variety of marine conservation based projects!

Whether your interests lie in conservation work, teaching or animal care (to name a few!), GVI has a volunteering project for you.

GVI has been operating volunteer projects all over the world for the past 14 years, and with all our projects we strive to ensure we use local operators and support local businesses. We are proud of our approach of establishing long-term and sustainable projects, in which the local community is always consulted first and foremost in order to determine their needs. By volunteering with GVI, you can be sure your volunteer holiday will be making a difference and supporting the right people.

Positive short term impact

Don’t think that just because you’re only volunteering over the short term that you can’t make a difference. GVI projects run year-round with full-time staff, at the direction of local partners and communities, so you can be sure your efforts are channeled correctly.
