Description:

GVN has the pleasure of announcing our new Youth Tour program. Designed with 15-17 year olds in mind, this program has been created to allow teens the chance to take part in one of our rewarding volunteer programs. This gives them the opportunity to immerse themselves in a developing country, experience another culture, and foster their personal growth, whilst helping communities in need.

The Vietnam Youth Tour program will provide teenagers with the opportunity to immerse themselves in a developing country, experience another culture, and foster their personal growth, whilst helping communities in need.

Based in the central region of Vietnam, volunteers will be surrounded by lush green rice paddies, rich traditional culture, beautiful beaches, and delicious Vietnamese food.

The Program

The 2 week Youth Tour will take place in Central Vietnam between July 25th and August 7th 2010.

Teen volunteers would be supervised while caring for babies, and playing games or teaching arts and crafts to the gorgeous children in the orphanages. They could also be involved in helping to teach English or work on a special project such as painting a school. 

The Youth Tour has 24 hour supervision, GVN staff guidance, a local translator, as well as village and cultural tours. This is a terrific opportunity for teens to see how children in a developing country live, and how they can help.

If you would like to be involved in the volunteer experience of a lifetime, you can visit the Global Volunteer Network website to find out more or to apply online: http://www.globalvolunteernetwork.org/youth_tour/vietnam/
