  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.


  • ISV gives you the opportunity to see the ground roots of a country in a way that you couldn't if you traveled on your own. You meet like-minded people who are around your age who are enthused about traveling and making a difference.

    Jenna McKenzie University of Western Ontario Canada

  • ISV took me on a life-changing adventure where I pushed myself to accomplish things I would have never thought possible while building a family in the process. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Allison Davies Indiana University Bloomington USA

  • It was very interesting and informative and had an amazing time while making a difference. Amazing trip and experience!

    Sarah Manson University of Edinburgh UK

  • I have learned so much about NZ (and even the US and Canada) than I ever thought I would. This trip has been life-changing in every way. I never thought I could get so close to a group of people so quickly.

    Kathryn McDonald University of Michigan Ann Arbor USA

  • I feel like I’ve gotten to know people on this project and I enjoyed both parts of the adventure equally. I learned a lot about NZ. I feel like the educational aspect is very important as well. I definitely want to come back to NZ and I'm also glad I managed to keep a journal all this time. Great experience.

  • This program opened my eyes to what an impact a group of students from around the world could have on the environment.

    Jaclyn North University of Minnesota Twin Cities USA

  • I will return home with a greater desire to live my life to its full potential. The experience was truly the most fun I have ever had.

    James Podrebarac Carleton University Canada

  • I would never have gotten the amazing experience I had in NZ if I had gone backpacking. Everything was well organized and punctual. If you have the chance - take it and join ISV NZ.

    Elizabeth Heine Colorado State University USA

  • My volunteer experience was brilliant! It opens your eyes on so many more levels and shows just how important conservation is. I met so many great people and had a great time!

    Lindsey Glenton University of Hull UK

  • This trip has been, by far, the greatest experience of my life. I regret nothing. I learned so much about NZ and its culture. I have also grown as a person from this trip. I feel such a connection to this country now. I will never forget this trip and how lucky I am to have had these experiences.
