Global Village Trips

When you volunteer internationally to build decent, affordable shelter with Global Village, you will take part in a transformative, lifelong journey that may ignite your passion for making this world a better place. The funds you raise will help build decent shelter in the country you visit.

What to Expect 

While every Global Village trip is different, you can expect to gain once-in-a-lifetime experiences and memories. During your trip, you will experience the community’s culture, language and social practices while working alongside homeowners and volunteers of all backgrounds, races and religions.

Global Village volunteers must be at least 16 years old prior to the start of the trip.
