Brief overview

If you enjoy children and teens, you can be an essential resource in Crete.

Volunteer in Greece, and teach promising and at-risk students English - the international language of commerce, technology, and opportunity! Or, assist with recreational programs and craft making at a friendly center for handicapped youth and adults. Community volunteer sites are set within the picturesque mountain valleys and coastal communities the island of Crete are internationally known for.

Enjoy service-learning as a family, couple or solo volunteer. Teens, especially, find summer "language camps" a fun and challenging service opportunity to work with students on English pronunciation and usage.

"Global Volunteers are priceless....It is not just the work they do within the community; it is also the broader impact they have on our children, teaching them that they too can become volunteers within our community"! - Mr Kostas Mamoulakis, Mayor of Maleviziou

No need for previous teaching experience

You'll be provided classroom materials and curricula to guide your lessons. And, most often, you'll be "team teaching" with another volunteer. Your knowledge of standard pronunciation, idioms, and syntax is the resource they seek.

Volunteer and make a significant difference in Greece. Always serving at the invitation and under the direction of host community partners, each Global Volunteers team member works alongside local professionals on these service projects.

Global Volunteers has been working at various locations in Greece since 1996, with our program in Gazi initiated in summer 2005. Working in partnership with local people on long-term community projects is foundational to our relationship with host organizations worldwide. Our investments of volunteer service, program support and international recognition are hallmarks of our commitment to this partnership.

Greece Host Community

Gazi County, with a population of about 20,000, is located near the city of Iraklion a few kilometers from the Aegean Sea. While Global Volunteers has been working at various locations in Greece since 1996, the programs in Gazi began in summer 2005. Gazi is considered a "bedroom community" for Iraklion, and provides a quiet, modern contrast to the island's economic and political center. Ancient sites - well within the boundaries of the greater Gazi area - tell of the nation's chaotic history.
