Volunteer Abroad as a Family

Volunteering as a family is a life-changing experience. It’s a unique way to spend time with your family, whilst & immersing yourself in the local culture & language, and making a positive impact to the local community you’re in.

OGVO offers incredibly safe, enriching, international volunteering opportunities for families. All of our programs include planning and support, safe travel and accommodations, meaningful volunteer service, genuine opportunities for cultural immersion, and instruction in the local language. Our program offers everything your family needs for an experience of a lifetime. We welcome children from 4 and upwards on our family projects; though on certain projects the age might be a little older.

When you make international volunteering a family activity, you give your family access to a world way beyond what they see every day. Young children become immersed in a new culture, teens learn the value of personal responsibility and commitment, and the whole family is brought closer together as they expand their horizons and become global citizens.


NOTE:
Traveling with 10 or more people? One family member goes free!
