  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.

New Zealand programs are unavailable for 2018.


  • This experience has been beyond amazing. It has surpassed all my expectations and it has truly been life-changing. I have made friends for life.

  • Fell in love with New Zealand, the people, experiences and the country itself. I am leaving with more than ten new friends; my group became a part of my family. I challenged myself every day and I couldn't have asked for anything better.

  • Incredible trip piled with sites we wouldn't have been able to catch on our own. Well planned with lots to do and experience. Simply incredible.

    Joni Lane Radford University USA

  • In retrospect, this marvelous trip has provided me with numerous stories, life experiences, and of course, friends for life. If anything could have been done differently, I wouldn't have allowed for it, because every aspect, good or bad, contributed a valuable life-learning experience.

  • Hands-down the best way to travel abroad in college. Don't study abroad- this is way better than any trip you could take.

    Nicholas Adams University of Georgia USA

  • I have gained from this experience countless memories, lasting friendships, and a much greater understanding of ways in which I can be environmentally aware in my hometown. I have a new found love and appreciation for the environment and have been inspired to make a difference.

  • The work we accomplished in New Zealand has served as a model of environmental conservation that we can bring back to the United States and apply in our everyday life. New Zealand was an awesome and inspiring experience.

    Brian MacElvaine University of California Davis USA

  • Looking back on the entire trip I am amazed at what we accomplished in a one month period and I am very proud to have been a part of the ISV conservation project in New Zealand. I would recommend this program to anyone who has a willingness to learn and care for the environment.
