Global Volunteers is a worldwide network of local people, community leaders, volunteers, staff and board members committed to waging peace and promoting justice.

Our co-founders followed their vision of international volunteer service to create, nurture and sustain the well-being of the world’s children after a decidedly unconventional “volunteer honeymoon” in 1980.  Our community partners are devoted to delivering essential services to at-risk children and families. Most of our international volunteer service programs are led by country managers who were born and raised in the host country.  Our board members are passionate professionals from diverse fields with expertise in international volunteer service.  Our dedicated staff contributes deep international and development expertise to providing exceptional volunteer management.

Together, Global Volunteers partners, board, staff and volunteers work to wage peace and catalyze life-altering international volunteer service.
