We offer tailor-made, educational and award winning group volunteer programs for high school, university and corporate groups across the globe.
All the work undertaken on our group volunteer programs directly benefits the local community or environment, and each of our programs’ long, mid and short-term objectives are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
While we aim to facilitate sustainable, long-term change on each of our programs, we also aim to increase the personal growth and interpersonal skills of each individual involved, whilst providing full cultural immersion.
These programs are also ideal for groups looking to complete certain international curricula such as the CAS elements of the IB Diploma or Middle Years program, ‘Week Without Walls’, or the Round Square Ideals.
Alternatively, if you’re looking to incorporate classroom based learning, theories and research into real life services on the ground, including a comprehensive pre and post-curriculum, please consider our service learning programs for groups.
I thoroughly recommend GVI to anyone; whether you are an educator looking to take a group away, or an individual looking for a career break. I took a group of my students to South Africa in 2014 and they all had an amazing and life-changing experience. Prior to the trip, the support we received from GVI was incredible, and their hard work and attention to detail made sure that our itinerary whilst on the trip was perfect. I will be looking to take more school groups away with GVI in the future, and urge you too as well!MATTY LEADBETTER
