See the World & Make a Difference with Volunteer Travel Programs
Run a Volunteer Service Program with ILI!
ILI Travel works with schools and teachers, professors and colleges, Girl Scouts, non-profit leaders, and many others in service learning projects at home and abroad.
Traveling to another country for service learning can be a life-altering experience; many volunteers never look at the world the same way again. We work closely with non-profit organizations in the Dominican Republic and Haiti to ensure that our work furthers their needs for empowerment and sustainability.
Working with groups from PA, NJ, and around the country, ILI offers a number of trip opportunities and formats to choose from, including:
Change the Lives of Others — Along with Your Own
“The Dominican Republic trip was the BEST week of my life!” exclaimed Emily, a student from Montgomery County. That’s why high school teachers are running similar volunteer service programs overseas, as teens are finding that they are growing from their volunteer work abroad in ways they couldn’t have imagined otherwise. In fact, one of our teachers who is running a similar international trip next summer saw 22% of their students returning from one year to the next.
Although we work with groups from around the country, many of our volunteer partners are local, coming from communities in and surrounding areas such as:
- Chester County
- Burlington County
- Bucks County
- Essex County
- Union County
- Warren County
- Montgomery County
We work with college professors running international social justice work projects overseas, working closely with local non-profit organizations. In the Dominican Republic, some groups visit a Dominican prison, meet with an NGO to work on reintegrating inmates into society, and volunteer with a nonprofit empowering young girls living in extreme poverty. These volunteer travel programs integrate social justice to better understand the public and private advocacy at the heart of efforts for social change in the country we visit.
Our Core Values
All programs are based on the following core values:
- Paying Fair Trade Wages on our Volunteer Service Programs
- Supporting local developmental groups by working on issues based on locally identified needs
- Economic sustainability
- Educational sustainability
- Environmental sustainability
Are you looking for teen trips abroad for your students? We send youth groups of 12-50+ students to support local communities on locally-identified needs through our various volunteer service programs.
Are you looking for service trips for college students, or are you looking to combine service with a social justice tour of nonprofits in the country while learning more about their mission? We have voluntary service/social justice programs for colleges and universities.
Are you looking for a philanthropic service learning program for your YMCA, Girl Scout troop, Boy Scout troop, or other youth community organization? If so, our volunteer service programs can integrate the values of your organization into an international service learning opportunity for a true cultural exchange.
Are you looking for a non-religious mission trip? We can provide service learning for your interfaith group through our volunteer service programs.
Supporting the Local Economy
During our service trips, we act as guests in their country, joining in service in ways that leave a behind a positive impact. We bring students from PA, NJ, and other areas, to collaborate with philanthropic groups in these countries because we are committed to supporting communities according to their needs. We stay in locally-owned hotels and eat in locally-owned restaurants, because we believe in directly investing our money in the communities we serve.
Providing Trips All-Year Round
We offer service learning throughout the year, though summer trips are in highest demand. In our programs, students have the opportunity to do everything from running summer camps and painting schools to working with children living in extreme poverty and teaching English. Through the totality of the efforts of all of our groups, we collectively work to transform a community.
