Volunteer with Children
Volunteering abroad with children is a fantastic opportunity for volunteers, skilled or with no experience, who have a genuine love for children to help make a difference in the futures of underprivileged children from a variety of backgrounds. We have a range of projects to choose from in exciting, exotic and mythical locations such as Fiji, South Africa, India, Costa Rica, Laos and many more! We also have specific teaching projects where you can make a difference through teaching, click here to see the programs.
Volunteering with children is a very rewarding experience and will give you invaluable practical experience. If you want to pursue a career in child education, you can always join our international community development internships to further develop your skills. Help us make a difference in the educational, social, physical and personal development of vulnerable and disadvantaged children around the world.

Please note that GVI has a Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy that is implemented on each program. As part of the policy, participants will be required to complete a DPS check, Police Clearance, or a National Background Check where necessary, and to comply by the policy.
Our volunteers can find themselves working with children at different stages of development in orphanages, care centres, local schools or in therapy centres for children with special needs. With the support of our volunteers, GVI and our partner organisations are able to provide these children with a safe environment and the support, supervision, socialisation and education in a range of subjects including English, Maths, Art and Sport.
