Run One of Our Volunteer Service Programs!
We work with teachers and schools, professors and colleges, Girl Scouts, non-profit leaders, and many others. Visiting a country for service learning proves to be a life changing experience for many who will 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.
“The Dominican Republic trip was the BEST week of my life,” explained Emily, a student from Montgomery County. That’s why high school teachers are running similar volunteer service programs overseas. Students are finding that during a voluntary trip, they are growing in ways from their volunteer work abroad that they have not experienced otherwise. In fact, one teacher is running a similar international trip next summer saw 22% of the students returning from one year to the next.
College professors from Chester County and Bucks County are running international social justice work projects overseas. These community service trips involve 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.
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 high school service trips abroad for your students? We send 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 do you want to combine service with a social justice tour of nonprofits in the country and learning more about their mission. We have voluntary service/ social justice programs for colleges and universities.
Are you looking for a service learning program for your YMCA, Girl Scout troop, Boy Scout troop, or other community organization? If so, our volunteer service programs can integrate the values of your organization into an international service learning opportunity that is 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.
We act as guests in their country, joining in service in ways that leave a positive impact on their communities. We bring students from PA, NJ, and beyond to collaborate with 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 our money staying in the communities we serve.
Do you work with a school or community group interested in such voluntary service learning? We have had participants on our summer trips from PA to Minnesota, from NJ to Michigan, including Burlington County, Essex County, Union County, Warren County, and many other places.
We offer service learning throughout the year, though summer trips are in highest demand. In our programs, students from Essex County can be running a summer camp. Students from Warren County can be painting a school. Students from Burlington County can be working with children living in extreme poverty. Students from Union County can be teaching English. The totality of the efforts of all of our groups is how we collectively work to transform a community.
