GVI has engaged over 35,000 participants, set up 600 community partnerships, and currently runs hundreds of programs in five continents worldwide, and we’re proud to say that most of our participants describe their experience with us as ‘life changing’. 

Our programs are operated by our own staff and aligned to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals or UN SDGs as well as the objectives of our local partners. We welcome participants from all over the world and help facilitate their development into global citizens. This is how we achieve our mission of building a global network of people united by their passion to make a difference.

All our projects are centered around making a positive impact. An experience with GVI is one that creates positive change and inspires students to continue making a difference with a deeper sense of global engagement.

We are driven to provide a sustainable, positive impact, alongside both our local project participants and our global partners. Using the UNSDGs as a framework, each project has long, mid and short-term objectives that are defined with each local partner. By working within these parameters, we ensure we are making the biggest difference possible, for all parties involved.

Our commitment to running high-quality sustainable development and experiential education programs has earned us recognition from numerous organizations such as Panthera, Save The Children, WWF, PADI, and the Seychelles National Parks Authority. The work of our staff and participants is also regularly featured in reputable international and regional publications such as National Geographic, CNN, The Independent, and The Sunday Times.

Come join us in creating a lasting impact for all parties involved, in becoming global citizens, and in having a truly life changing experience!
