The key components of a volunteer expedition focus on exploration, travel and complete cultural immersion. Explore the world on a GVI expedition and find yourself in some of the most remote and dramatic locations in the world. Work and live closely with an international group of volunteers on a broad range of conservation and community issues.
From diving in protected marine areas to terrestrial surveys within National Park boundaries, on a volunteer expedition you can go places where regular tourists cannot. See below for all GVI expeditions. We now also have a range of programs specifically for students looking to travel during their spring break; join an alternative springbreak program or join a gap year volunteering program abroad and make a real difference in the world. Whether you’re looking for a gap year, sabbatical, career break or a complete change in career direction, there’s a volunteer project to suit you, including our internships abroad and multi-country combo programs.
