Group volunteering abroad is a great idea. How so? Because it provides all of the amazing benefits and advantages of individual volunteering plus more! These benefits add value not only to the team members, but also for the facilitator of the group, whether that group is from a college/university, a company or a simply a group of friends. Among those benefits one will find team building, enhancing skills by stepping out of one’s comfort zone while surrounded by supportive partners, strengthening the connection to your organization, the sharing of meaningful moments and many more.

Lucky for you, this idea has been vetted and executed by GoEco for many years. GoEco has placed over 17,000 volunteers since its creation in 2006.
