We are excited to announce that we have started a new Dominican Republic, Baseball initiative entitled: Global Students Volunteer (GSV) - Dominican Republic.

  • You learn a lot about the world and yourself. ISV Thailand was an amazing experience. I got to know fantastic people and maybe some amazing friends. I got to see the world in a new light and it made me appreciate the way I live. I had an amazing 2 weeks and would gladly do it again.

  • It was an incredible experience that will change the way you see the world. Participated in ISV was the best decision I've ever made. Everyone wants to make a world a better place but it's another thing to see great people making real change and having them welcome you to join. ISV changed the way I see the world and opened my eyes to a new future for myself.

  • It is a life changing experience culturally and emotionally. You will meet like minded people, experience true culture and be immersed into the life of Asian elephants and Thai people. I couldn't think of a better way to experience Thailand.

  • An amazing experience that made me a better citizen of the world.

    Evan Poole University of Pittsburgh USA

  • I came into this experience unsure about my career choice and what I would get out of this experience in terms of education. At the end of the two volunteer weeks, I've learned so much not only about environmental studies but about myself. I connected with my group members, with myself and with nature on a whole different level. This trip has opened my eyes and my heart and has guided me on a life-changing journey.

  • The ISV experience is not one that can be replicated. It gives you a one in a million view of a country.

    Karina Lovell Sydney University

  • I've had an amazing month and got to do and see things I never thought I would. I loved the conservation work in the first two weeks, knowing that I was actually making a difference and the adventure tour was just awesome.
