Friends that become family

We cannot change the world by ourselves. That’s why community is at the heart of what we do at GVI. We bring together like-minded people bound by a shared mission. This bond is our greatest strength. The people you meet, the values you share, the work you do, the friendships you forge, and the adventures you have together not only have the power to change your life – but to change the world.
