What are your summer ‘23 plans?
Maybe you want to travel? Make new friends? Learn new skills? Change the world just a little? Why not all of the above?
Come hang out with us at our next Virtual Open Day on April 22 and let us help you plan your perfect summer.
Find out more about our program types, our internships, and our customised group expeditions. Speak to our alumni, meet our passionate field staff, and get all your burning questions answered.
It’s free. It’s fun. And you’ll get access to an exclusive offer.
You’re a change maker. A citizen of the world. You want to do things a little differently. You’re keen to play your part. To get out there – to live close to nature, protect wild animals and conserve our oceans. You want to take a risk, have a positive impact and make memories that will last a lifetime.
You want to unite with global citizens from around the world to build a different future together.
But perhaps you’re nervous about what to expect travelling in a post-Covid world? Or maybe you’re wondering what volunteering or interning is really about, and what makes GVI so special?
At GVI’s next Open Day, you’ll receive all the information you need to put your mind at ease, and get you excited about your next adventure.
You’ll also get exclusive access to a special GVI Open Day offer. If you make your booking and pay a deposit of £100/US$190 by midnight 24 April 2023 (EDT), you’ll qualify for an additional £100/US$190 off your booking. If you use this offer, you can also pay your program off in instalments at no extra cost (usually a fee of £125/US$250 applies).
Take the first step on the journey of a lifetime. Sign up for our Open Day. Limited spots – first come, first served.

The GVI Open Day takes place over Zoom, and a link will be sent to you via email and text message the day before the event.
No Zoom account is needed and in the event that you would like to download Zoom, the free version is perfectly suitable.
If you are a first-time Zoom user, don’t sweat, it’s easy to use. Please note that GVI presenters and other attendees will not be able to see you via video or hear you via sound. You are welcome to engage with us and each other by typing in the chat box and ask the presenter questions in real-time via the Q&A box, which will then be answered live.
