What does it cost?
Our Global VolunTourism (GVT) programs are designed to allow you to insert a module into your vacation. We offer volunteering opportunities for as little as one day and up to1week. The price varies on which modules you choose.

Included in your price:
· English Speaking in-country coordinator to accompany you to
your assignment

· Supplies for the project

· Transportation, when required

· Limited liability insurance

Can I combine volunteering with my vacation?
Absolutely! Your GVT program will be designed with this objective in mind. It’s up to you how to integrate GVT into your vacation. We can help you develop a pre- or post-travel itinerary to complement your GVT experience. While we strongly encourage you to participate as a Global VolunTourist for a week, a month or longer, we can arrange a GVT community service project that can be accomplished in a single day as part of your vacation. Either way, you will participate in a GVT program and positively influence the lives of the people you are helping, the people around you and yourself.

Where are the opportunities?
We offer programs in Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Viet Nam. The Global VolunTourist can teach English classes in a school, help out in an orphanage, work at center for special-needs children, build a house in a local community, conduct a workshop using your career skills, teach a class on hospitality, perform public health services in the field or combine different activities. You tell us what you are interested in, and we match you up accordingly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do I have to be a teacher to participate?
No, not all projects are education focused, and anyone can participate in a GVT program. Once we have a completed profile we will rrr recommend an appropriate GVT program for you that will use your individual life-skills. GVT Programs are knowledge-exchange programs during which friends help friends. While individuals with specific life-skills and professional expertise are essential in certain GVT Programs, individuals with an interest in a particular program also are a vital component to the success of Global VolunTourism. There are many different ways in which you can participate in a GVT Program.


Is this tax deductible?

Because of our organization’s (GCSF) 501(c)(3) status, you may be able to deduct all or part of the cost of the GVT Program from your taxes. For more detailed information please consult your accountant.


Are the programs for children or adults?

For participants: We ask that any child that wants to be a Global VolunTourist is accompanied by an adult, and that the minimum age to participate is 13 years old. For the people that are benefiting from your time: GVT programs entail working with children and/or adults. The Global VolunTourist can teach English classes in a school, help out in an orphanage, work at center for special-needs children, build a house in a local community, conduct a workshop using your career skills, teach a class on hospitality, perform public health services in the field or combine different activities. You tell us what you are interested in, and we match you up accordingly.


I am going to be traveling ALONE; can I do this by myself?
Many of our Global VolunTourists are single travelers. Your GVT Program Module includes services of an English-speaking Program Coordinator and/or a local assistant, which should help with your comfort level. Since this is a great experience, hopefully you can have a friend go with you, but for solo travelers, this is a perfect way to meet new friends in a new country.
