GVI has spent over 20 years perfecting the quality of our international sustainable development projects to ensure that you achieve the maximum positive impact while on your volunteer trip abroad. This is why we offer a range of long term volunteer opportunities in locations across the globe, for durations from three months to one year. This allows you to have more time in the field, helping you to make a real impactful difference on your program and in the community in which you volunteer.

This option is also ideal if you’re looking to gain valuable practical experience in fields such as conservation or education. Many of our long term volunteering options also include extensive professional training opportunities. So besides being able to guarantee that our volunteers will be contributing to solving critical global issues, taking part in one of our programs will also improve your chances of excelling in your chosen profession.

We run programs across the world that allow you to volunteer in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, including South and Central America, or Australasia. With GVI you can volunteer in Cambodia, Canary Islands, Costa Rica, Ghana, Greece, India, Laos, Mexico, Nepal, Peru, Seychelles, South Africa, Thailand, and Fiji.

So whether you’re looking for a gap year, sabbatical, career break or a complete change in career direction, there’s a program to suit you. Choose from one of our internships abroad, volunteering expeditions and multi-country combinations which offer a variety of long term volunteer programs. You can also contact us to speak to one of our Enrollment Managers about their recommended volunteering programs. If it’s funding you’re working on, see our scholarships and fundraising platform.
