Immerse yourself in a foreign culture and help the community make a sustainable change while earning academic credit by joining Growth International Volunteer Excursions (GIVE)! GIVE is having information sessions on Thursday, September 4th in the Holmes Student Center, Rm 306 about unique volunteer opportunities and our fully accredited academic course in Central America, Southeast Asia, and Africa this summer. We hope to see you there!

Become a part of our volunteer community and empower local villages abroad in Northern Thailand, Nicaragua, and Tanzania. Earn university academic credit by participating in a unique, accredited experiential learning course that will provide you with life changing professional and personal growth!

GIVE is dedicated to create opportunities for community development and service learning overseas through education, sustainable infrastructure projects, and environmental conservation. As a GIVE volunteer, you will build schools out of recyclable materials, implement fresh water projects, teach English, complete marine and environmental conservation projects, and help protect critically endangered species.

In conjunction, you will get the chance to immerse yourself in the culture of your host country and participate in incredible adventure travel within the region. This includes (but is not limited to): overnight safaris in Africa, sand-boarding down an active volcano in Nicaragua, scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins and sharks in tropical waters, surfing, cave exploration, volunteering at elephant sanctuaries in Thailand, and much more! 

GIVE is committed to using best practices in sustainable development. Our development approach is supported by numerous experts in the field, and is designed to empower our host communities. For example, GIVE volunteers constructed an entire secondary school out of 15,000 plastic bottles recycled straight from the community, and is funding desperately needed technical education initiatives for a fishing village in rural Nicaragua.

Not only will you have a hands-on experience, you will also have the opportunity to learn about sustainable development and cross-cultural relations through our UNIV 304 International Sustainable Development course offered in partnership with Central Washington University!

Now it's your turn to be part of more innovative, relevant, and unique projects that will literally change your life and the lives of the locals you are assisting as well. Make the world your classroom, make an impact overseas, and be the roots of change!
