  1. ISV will only be conducting programs for this coming summer, 2018 in the Dominican Republic. We are excited to announce that we have started a new Dominican Republic, Baseball initiative entitled: Global Students Volunteer (GSV) - Dominican Republic. Our purpose is to assist the children in the impoverished villages of the DR with education, infrastructure building and recreation to improve their living standards in the name of Baseball.

  • I truly had an experience of a lifetime. I made so many new friends and had a blast while doing so. I also feel like I have learned so much about sea turtles, the amazing Costa Rican culture! I had fun while making a difference and I learned things I never would have learned from a textbook.

  • This experience was like nothing I´d ever imagined. Nothing could replace this experience and I would do it no other way. I would recommend this program to any and every student willing to make the journey!

  • Meeting new people and all working toward an incredible project and goal was an amazing experience. I would do it again and again if I could. Being immerse in a foreign culture with people that I have become great friends with has been an incredible experience that I wish didn´t have to end. I´ll always remember my time in Costa Rica working with sea turtles.

  • These past two weeks have been above my expectations. I feel different and I hope our contribution will make a difference. I am proud of our work and I am already missing the community and all the exchanges we had within our group and with the community. Thank you Biolley and Mauricio.

  • This volunteer experience will change the way you see yourself in the world and hopefully entire you to change it! Volunteering with ISV is the toughest and most rewarding volunteer experience I´ve ever had. If you are serious about learning how to make a difference in the world and being a positive impact in the world community, ISV is for you.

  • It was a challenging two weeks that tested my endurance, but in the end it was the best time of my life. I wouldn´t trade this experience for anything.

    Michelle Hoang University of North Carolina Greensboro USA

  • It is an experience unlike any other, you learn so much about others as well as yourself. My ISV project has opened up so many thoughts and ideas for my future. I gained so much personally while giving back to this beautiful country. It was a win-win.

  • I would recommend it a thousand times! This project was like nothing I´ll ever done before and not at all what I expected, yet it was the best two weeks of my life.
