Global Volunteers

Global Volunteers pioneered short-term volunteer programs in 1984 to engage volunteers in meaningful community development projects around the world. Global Volunteers aims to promote peace and justice all over the globe. The nonprofit organization, in partnership with UNICEF, is led by experts and local leaders who develop and evaluate programs that help prepare short-term volunteers to maximize their contributions to long-term development projects in communities, especially in addressing the safety and development of children. To date, Global Volunteers has engaged over 32,000 volunteers in 34 different countries. Invest in the continuous improvement of our volunteer management and gain new volunteer learning opportunities. Become a Global Volunteer and join the movement!
