    Volunteer vacations are called many things, you may see terms which generally mean the same thing, depending on the organization which uses the term, such as voluntourism, service vacations, international volunteering, volunteer travel, working vacations, gap year travel, volunteer travel, volunteering abroad.
    Globe Aware volunteer vacation destinations are around the world, including to two Peru locations (Andes & Cusco/Machu Picchu), Costa Rica, Thailand, Cuba, Nepal, Brazil, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, India, Jamaica, Romania, Ghana, Mexico, and China.

  • ga-logoGlobe Aware focuses on short term, one week volunteer vacations. These are specially formatted for working people with limited vacation time who want to volunteer abroad.
    Volunteers help to empower the host communities in creating renewable, sustainable programs. While Globe Aware's financial assistance benefits the community economically, it is actually the involvement and collaboration between the volunteers and community that is the greatest mutual benefit. Globe Aware is not a foundation that focuses on giving out charity, but rather an organization which focuses on creating self reliance.

    Globe Aware Volunteer Vacations

  • slideset imageGlobe Aware trips are professionally planned and lead. You do not need special skills or the ability to speak a foreign language. Globe Aware employees lay the ground work prior to your arrival; accompany you during your volunteer vacation, and assist with transfers and departures.
    Every activity in which we engage is intended to accomplish one of two things: promote cultural awareness and/or promote sustainability. For us the concept of cultural awareness means to recognize and appreciate the real beauties and real challenges of a culture, but not to change it. The concept of sustainability is to help others stand on their own two feet; to teach skills rather than reliance.
