GVI Open Day, London


RESOURCE FOR LONDON – 23 MAR 2019, 11H00 – 15H30

Join Global Vision International for our Open Day in London to find out more about the exciting options we offer for international volunteering. Our knowledgeable staff matches volunteers with projects focusing on teaching, wildlife conservation, volunteering with children, marine conservation, construction and much much more.

There’ll be talks on sustainable development, community upliftment, and many other interesting topics. There’ll also be a few special offers up for grabs. You’ll get £100 off if you pay your deposit for your program on the day. You can always change the destination you want to go to within 3 months.

These programs take place in thirteen different countries around the world. Their aim is to help you develop professional skills through training, while you volunteer abroad on community development and environmental conservation projects. So if you’re interested in using your summer breaks or annual leave to make a difference this is your chance. Come to meet us and hear what the experience will involve, from somebody who’s been there and taken part firsthand.
