Volunteering abroad with your family on volunteer holidays is a unique way to spend time with your nearest and dearest, while sharing rewarding experiences, exploring new places and making a sustainable impact in some of the world’s poorest regions. This is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in a new language and explore different cultures.  

GVI runs been running volunteer programs around the world for over 10 years, and have carefully selected the following projects for families wishing to volunteer abroad:

– Experience life in Nepal and volunteer at a local care centre
– Travel to Greece and volunteer on vital conservation efforts, or
– Explore sunny South Africa while working on valuable construction projects

GVI is pleased to announce that a family member under the age of 18 will receive 25% off the fee of a family volunteering project for each adult family member joining the project, minimum age 14. All our programs adhere to strict health and safety guidelines. 

Please note due to the varying group dynamics of different families (for example the number of children and ages of children), each application is dealt with on a case-by-case basis. Please call us directly to discuss your family’s volunteering requirements. If you are slightly older we have great volunteer programs for over 50’s too. Take a look at what previous participants had to say about their time with us!
