Ethno-linguistic travels with SVI

language&culture encounters

WELCOME TO SERVICE VOLONTAIRE INTERNATIONAL

We don’t organise “holidays” or “trips”, rather we organise encounters where individuals are encouraged to discover new cultures and meet new people
#

Promotion of intercultural dialogue and peace

We are a non-profit association and all our income stays in the SVI in order to allow us to continue promoting international exchanges based on volunteering. SVI is an officially recognised youth organisation the Belgian Ministry of Youth.

Affordable price

We offer an affordable price by working directly with our local partners, with whom we have been cooperating for a long time.

Individual support

We highly value the safety of our members. We guarantee our members a secure trip and learning environment thanks to the long-term partnerships we cultivate with host organisation and, the feedback of participants. Participants can rely on the individual support before, during and after the project.

Associative life and preparation events

We offer preparation events, which include meeting former participants, intercultural training and talks specific to the different destinations, countries and regions. You can join other events of SVI before or after your travel, such as free conversation tables, on-line courses or can propose us your own initiative.

But what does it really mean?

How Can I Apply?

Thanks to competent language schools, you can learn languages in any destination, especially English because of its role as international language! English in Vietnam? Yes, it is possible, since many of native teachers now work all over the world! Bear this in mind when you’re choosing your project!
