'The intercultural coexistence with GVI volunteers enriches their development'

~Save the Children, Mexico

'The opportunities and experiences they give their volunteers are unrivalled'

~Sam Meacham, Explorer and National Geographic/WAITT Grantee


Under 18 but still want to volunteer abroad? Look no further! GVI sends thousands of teenagers abroad every year through our specially designed under 18 volunteer projects. Our projects aim to give young adults (aged 15 to 17), a perfect blend of volunteering, cultural and language immersion, skills training and adventure activities during their summer abroad.

Volunteering abroad at a young age, not only helps young adults gain a better understanding of the world, its problems and how they can be solved, but it is also seen by universities and employers as something that sets the individual apart from other applicants. Furthermore, volunteers can receive the University Award by ASDAN, for partaking in one of our programs for 2 weeks or longer, which gives students an edge in their UCAS applications for university.

Under 18 volunteers can choose from various volunteer abroad projects, volunteer as a group with their school, join an alternative springbreak project abroad, or take local language lessons and truly immerse themselves into the local communities while contributing to critical development projects.

For parents and guardians of under 18 travelers, you can download our Information Pack here.

On every programme we operate, your GVI leaders will be with you to make sure that you are safe, and to ensure consistent communication with our offices back home. Health and safety on our programmes is paramount – we have an impeccable track record and strive to maintain it.
