Volunteering abroad with your family on volunteer vacations is a unique way to spend time with your nearest and dearest, while sharing rewarding experiences, exploring new places and making a sustainable impact in some of the world’s poorest regions. This is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in a new language and explore different cultures.

GVI has been running volunteer programs around the world for over 10 years, and have carefully selected the following projects for families wishing to volunteer abroad:

  • Experience life in Nepal and volunteer with children on childhood development programs
  • Travel to Greece and volunteer on vital turtle conservation initiatives
  • Explore Mexico while working on valuable community projects, or;
  • Support community development and education in Cambodia.

GVI is pleased to announce that a family member under the age of 18 will receive 25% off the fee of a family volunteering project for each adult family member joining the project. We are not however able to support children under the age of 14 on any of our programs, including family volunteering programs. This is both due to the nature of the tasks which need to be completed and the additional support required for those under the age of 14.

All our programs adhere to strict health and safety guidelines. 

Please note due to the varying group dynamics of different families (for example the number of children and ages of children), each application is dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

Please call us directly to discuss your family’s volunteering requirements. If you are slightly older we have great volunteer programs for over 50’s too.
