How to apply for a programme?

Step 1

Read carefully the programme description and eligibility criteria. Then fill out the online application form and pay the booking fee in order to apply.

Step 2

Global Choices confirms your booking and place on the programme. We appoint a programme coordinator to lead you through the rest of the application process until you are successfully placed.

Step 3

You communicate with your programme coordinator and exchange all necessary documents and forms. Once the placement is confirmed you will need to purchase insurance and pay the remaining programme balance together with other fees (if appropriate).


The volunteer programmes are available throughout the year. We must receive your application form at least one month before your intended start date.

Our Participants Speak / Testimonials

Emma - UK

"When people comment to me on how wonderful it is for me to volunteer in Chandigarh , I'm quick to point out that I always receive much more than I give. Children provide such tremendous lessons in courage, inspiration, perseverance, and positive attitudes. In my 2 years as a volunteer, when programme is over I always come home grateful for the opportunity to be around these wonderful kids"
