With the help of international volunteers, Global Service Corps supports existing local organizations to train community members on public health issues, provides support to Cambodian at-risk children and orphans, gives youth leadership training workshops, and offers much-needed conversational English training. The goal is to empower the Cambodians to lead healthier lives and achieve positive futures.
GSC’s Service-Learning Programs in and around Phnom Penh, Cambodia give volunteers the opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture, while also providing meaningful service to vulnerable populations. GSC’s partnership with a range of local organizations, schools, and Buddhist monasteries allow us to provide meaningful and relevant service opportunities for international volunteers of all backgrounds.
GSC works closely with participants prior to their trip to determine the program best suited to their interest areas. Once on-site, our in-country coordinator and partners provide assistance and support. All Cambodia volunteer programs include:
