TRIP LENGTH and NEW OPPORTUNITIES
Check our website frequently as new trips are continually being added to the list. Trips are generally posted on the Global Village website 5 to 7 months before the trip departure date. Global Village builds are short term projects, usually 10 days to 2 weeks in length. The International Volunteer Program is designed for people wishing to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity for 3 to 24 months. This program is offered through Habitat for Humanity International, based in Americus, Georgia, USA. For more information please visit www.habitat.org/ivp.
MINORS: Please be advised that since volunteering for Habitat For Humanity requires working on a construction site, there are age restrictions for safety reasons. Persons under 18 years of age are permitted to participate on a Global Village team ONLY when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, or travelling with an institution such as a school or church. Youth must be a minimum of 15 years old to participate in most locations. However, in Canada, USA & Europe, volunteers must be a minimum of 16 years of age.
SENIORS: There is no age limit for seniors provided they have no health issues which may impede their participation.
