Lower Program Fees To Volunteer Longer

Posted by Randy LeGrant | Feb 28, 2009, 5:11:00 PM

So it only makes sense, doesn't it?  Volunteer longer and make more of a difference.  But staying longer costs you more and is much more of a commitment for most people.  So why are program fees more expensive the longer you stay?

GeoVisions is reversing this trend slowly.  Check out our Conversation Corps--China program.  The longer you stay, the lower the program fee.  If you can make a commitment to stay for 3 months, your program fee will be less expensive.

Think about it.  Your airfare is your airfare.  Stay a day, stay a month, stay 3 months.  The airfare is the same.  "L" visa?  $130.  It is what it is.  Stay a day or stay 3 months the visa fee is the same.  Because it is a Conversation Corps program, your room and board is covered already.  The GeoVisions advantage is that the program fee is reduced the longer your commitment.

It is true all of our other programs are just the opposite.  But we have started with China and we'll begin to make as many changes as we can.

We are including 2 weeks of Mandarin, 2 nights hotel in Beijing with room and board, a half day of orientation and a 1/2 day tour of Beijing.  Airport transfers, transport to the host family and weekly activities...just in case you need MORE to do.

We hope you will enjoy this program and this new concept.
