Global Volunteer Network


The Global Volunteer Network (GVN) offers volunteer service opportunities in community projects around the world.

We currently provide volunteer programs through our partner organizations in 21 countries throughout South America, Africa and Asia.

Our vision is to support the work of local community organizations in developing countries through the placement of international volunteers.

We believe that local communities are in the best position to determine their needs, and we provide volunteers to help them achieve their goals.

8 Years and 13,000 people from New Zealand and around the world.

Over the past 8 years we\’ve built up strong ties with grassroots organizations throughout the world, and placed over 13,000 volunteers.

At GVN we align with the idea of \’local solutions to local problems\’, so we continue to work with local community organizations in each country.

We provide a wealth of experience, resources and dedication to both our volunteers and our partners.
