Plan Your Escape from the Economic Climate This Summer with GVI

For those with extended university or summer breaks, or for those looking for that something different, Global Vision International (GVI) has recommended our Top Ten summer volunteering programs from 1 week to 2 months designed to suit any situation.

Boston, MA, June 09, 2009 --( Ethical volunteering company, Global Vision International (GVI) has recently launched a dedicated service to those soon to be on the joys of a summer break before university, during university, after university, or indeed for those just looking for a summer get away with a difference. The options are there for everyone to make the most of some time away from the daily working grind.

On the back of record applications and bookings in the first quarter of 2009, Global Vision International (GVI) are offering a series of summer volunteering opportunities from 1 week to 2 months in various stunning locations around the world. There is no need to get caught up in talks of recessions and the doom and gloom of job prospects, but a summer of volunteering will set volunteers apart from the vast majority of the crowd in an all important interview. For that push in the right direction, Global Vision International (GVI) have recommended our top ten summer volunteering programs that range from teaching English to childcare to community development to conservation.

In particular, a unique opportunity is available in Laos teaching English to Buddhist novice Monks. In this temple school, English proves to be the most popular subject and with a lack of native and fluent English speakers, volunteers are able to fill the void where their assistance in the classroom is an invaluable asset. On the other hand (and the other side of the world), a new addition to GVI’s collection of Latin American projects is community construction in Peru. A shorter term option, this project centers around the building of an energy efficient stove that will greatly benefit the health and life expectancy of all family members who at the moment live, eat and sleep around an open fire.
