Welcome to Global Works!
If you are looking for a program that encompasses community service, adventure travel, and cultural exchange, as well as language learning and homestay opportunities, Global Works is for you! Since 1990, Global Works has been providing exceptional summer service adventures for teenagers. More than just a travel program, our trips focus on meaningful cultural exchange as our participants work, play, and celebrate with families and communities around the world!
Global Works offers programs to a variety of amazing destinations. Trip length ranges from 2 to 5 weeks. All of our programs include rewarding community service, such as home construction and environmental work, as well as projects with schools, children, the eldery, and local organizations. Our trips also include adventure activities, such as surfing, kayaking, SCUBA diving, hiking, rafting, and excursions into cities, towns, and markets.
Many of our programs offer language learning in Spanish or French. The immersion experience starts with our bilingual leaders, who organize fun games and cultural activities in the country's language. All of these trips include a homestay experience, in which participants live with local families for 1 to 2 weeks. Global Works has been organizing homestays for many years and strives to provide safe and healthy learning environments!
Global Works Group Leaders are experienced and college educated adults (24 and over) who help organize and lead trips according to our high standards of quality, safety, and of course, FUN! They have experience working with teenagers, living and working internationally, and speaking the local language on our immersion programs.
