An experience of a lifetime

I have volunteered with Global Volunteers on eight service projects and, while it is hard to pick a favorite, Portugal is one near the top of the list. I taught English with two other adults to professors and college students who knew some English and wanted to become more confident in speaking. They were eager to learn from us and eager to share their culture with us as well. Not only did we spend two weeks together learning from one another, I am still in touch with several friends I made there. I can't say enough about the friendliness of the people of Portugal. Global Volunteers is a well run organization that works to provide a safe and enriching experience while helping others.

Share your native conversational English with Chinese English teachers

Working with Chinese English teachers is wonderful fun and deeply rewarding. No need to have teaching experience, just a desire to share your own interests and be open to new experiences. Far from the pollution of eastern China, Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province has a wonderful climate and a large variety of natural and cultural attractions. Part of the program is to explore some of them with your students and fellow volunteers. I've volunteered in Kunming seven times and hope to go back again.

St Lucia Earthboxes

I was a member of the 4th team to St Lucia. Myself and one other person worked on contacting sites, training locals on how to use Earthboxes and planting various vegetables with locals. We were driven to a nursery that supplied the plants, fertilizer and other gardening needs. It was very hot and humid and looked forward to cooling down in the swimming pool with other volunteers
Since this was relatively new to the locals it was hard to judge the effectiveness of this program I had heard some opposition from an element of the local population.

Wonderful Cook Islands

I have gone to the Cook Islands with Global Volunteers for eight years. There is a wonderful spirit on the Cook Islands that takes over your visit. It is relaxed and the people are warm and welcoming. I have been able to work in the same school every year and have watched the children grow and learn and benefit from the efforts of the volunteers. This is a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and make a difference.

My experience working with VIDS workers in Ha noi, Viet Nam

The workers at the Viet Nam Institute for Development Strategy could not have been nicer. It was a joy to go to work each day. Even a first time Global Volunteer who was a native speaker in English would have no trouble doing this job. All you needed was to help them with their pronunciation and a few vocabulary words. There was ample time to experience the history and social life of the city of Hanoi (Hanoi in our language). The hotel was one of the best stays in my numerous Global Volunteers trips.
