The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the local environment in Ecuador where you will serve. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects.
When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping a local grassroots organisation. Volunteer efforts directly benefit local groups, local communities, and local people. We work with our partner organizations in Ecuador to support them in achieving their goals and ensuring that their projects are sustainable and effective.
What to Expect?
In the conservation project, volunteers have the opportunity to get involved in the conservation efforts at four different biological stations: Amazon, Bilsa, Congal and San Cristobal (Galapagos Islands). The tasks will range from reforestation, biodiversity inventories, work in the local botanical gardens, and weekly hikes to explore the surroundings. Each biological station is different and therefore the tasks will vary depending on the location of your volunteer placement.
