TEAM LEADER POSITIONS -
EARN A FREE TRIP OF A LIFETIME!
If you are an ambitious, confident and determined university student who is passionate about travel (but not sure how to make those dreams a reality) all you have to do is recruit 10 or more people to take an OGVO trip and you will go absolutely free. All your accommodation, transfers, meals and in country support will be included!
You have a huge network of contacts at university, most of who will no doubt be bitten by the same travel bug as you, so you’re perfectly placed to spread the word about an Our Generation Voluntary Organisation trip of your choice.
You can run your trip at whatever time of the year you wish with advanced notice but generally speaking the summer months give you more scope. The minimum duration for the trip is 1 week and you can go away for up to 24 weeks. Extensions can be arranged with advanced notice as well.
