"Hi, I'm Catalina from Chicago, USA and I went with GVN to Peru and had an experience that took my breath away. Being able to touch another life and connect in such a heart moving way was incredible. If you want to volunteer abroad and contribute to humanity then take the first step and apply today!"
"I'd love to see more young people taking action to help the poor and disadvantaged. Two places to get started are Network for Good and Global Volunteer Network."
Bill Gates, Newsweek Web
CNN listed the Global Volunteer Network as one of 10 organizations that can help you to make a positive impact on the world around you. CNN encourages you to visit our website to get more details on how you too can Be The Change.
Perhaps the biggest difference that you will make is in you. Volunteering is a life-changing experience. It will provide you with a new outlook and lease on life. You will understand better than most people how you fit into the global family of humanity. Make no mistake about it, this is an experience that you won't want to miss. Here's what a few of our recent volunteers have said:
"I had the most unbelievable experience. It was hard work but hugely rewarding and after 6 weeks I didn't want it to end. I met so many great people and learnt so much about the environment. By the end it felt like my home; an experience I will never forget and recommend to everyone."
The GVN Foundation believes in inspiring learning, innovation, and action, to unlock the potential of vulnerable communities around the world. We support exceptional organizations working to empower communities in the US and around the world.
