Our Values

All Greeters and Greeter destinations share the same core values:

  • Greeters are volunteers, a friendly face for those visiting a city/destination
  • Greeters welcome individuals and may serve small groups of up to six people
  • Meeting a Greeter is free of charge
  • All visitors and volunteers are welcome without any kind of discrimination.
  • Greeter programs support sustainable tourism. Programs respect natural and man-made environments, bringing both cultural and economic enrichment to local communities. Programs aim for a lasting positive image of each destination.
  • Greeter programs create a mutually enriching opportunity for cultural exchange; create links between people in creating a better world.

The Core values are available in different languages:
