ISV's mission is to support sustainable development initiatives around the world through life-changing student volunteer and responsible adventure travel programs designed to positively change our world and to educate, inspire and result in more active global citizens.
The cumulative efforts of ISV volunteers produce outstanding results that truly make a difference. Since 2002, ISV volunteers have contributed over 3 million hours of volunteer service, and we continue to support many of the projects we partnered with more than 10 years ago. Each year, ISV also seeks out new projects and host organizations to support, increasing the variety and breadth of our global difference. Below is just a snapshot of the contribution our volunteers make each year around the world.
