Summer is almost upon us! We hope you are as excited for summer as we are. For families with children, summer presents the perfect opportunity to experience a new place and culture, while working alongside local communities to enhance and enrich the lives of others.
We are proud of offer family-friendly volunteer vacations with a variety of work projects suited to all ages and abilities. Some of our more popular programs are Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru; where in addition to work projects, families can spend free time zip-lining in the rainforest, kayaking on a lake, and exploring the majestic ruins of Machu Picchu. We hope you reap the benefits of serving and adventuring with your loved ones this summer!
Been there done that? Globe Aware is always looking to add new programs destinations for our volunteers and we want to hear from YOU! Tell us, what is your dream location for a volunteer vacation? Where would you like to serve and give a hand?

“Africa was such an amazing experience. The village that we worked at was wonderful. The people were so friendly and welcoming. We got to cook with the villagers, learn about their culture, teach the students and interact with everyone. The work was hard work but worth it. Although it was hot and challenging, it was so exciting seeing how much the villagers appreciated the work that we did in their village.
