Participating in a GSC Service-Learning Program or SOS Fellowship Program is a unique way to explore a new country and culture while also making a significant contribution to a local community. Ranging from two-week volunteer experiences to longer-term programs of nine weeks to 6 months and year-long international fellowships, GSC’s international volunteer programs appeal to volunteers with a wide variety of ages, skills and backgrounds.
What sets us apart among choices you have in volunteering abroad?
A respected leader in international volunteerism since 1993, GSC has partnered with numerous respected development organizations to provide support to communities that need it most. Working in collaboration with international NGOs such as Heifer International and Programs for Appropriate Technologies in Health (PATH), and multi-lateral organizations including the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), GSC has developed and shared its institutional knowledge to design meaningful and effective community training programs. GSC has gained NGO status in Tanzania in recognition of its contribution to this country.
As a GSC program participant, you have the opportunity to be a part of this international development work that will benefit the community and enrich you in ways you will always remember. Your GSC volunteer contribution not only offsets your preparation and project costs, it helps support this ongoing development work and your community hosts who offer so much to you.
