Become a Sending Partner

Sending Partners

On top of our direct recruitment, we rely on a network of carefully selected Sending Partners around the world to recruit participants onto our programs. As global leaders in youth travel and education, we offer our award-winning programs to our Sending Partners to fulfil their requirements for volunteering (over and under 18s, and groups), academic year or semesters abroad, internships and online training courses.

GVI works with two types of Sending Partners. Our Booking Partners confirm participants and manage the booking process until departure for the program, while our Referral Partners refer the details of interested participants to GVI, so that our Sales Team may contact them directly. We are happy to work on whichever model suits you best.

If you are interested in becoming a Sending Partner, please give us a call or fill in the form below and the Partners Team will be in touch shortly.
