Top Ten Family Volunteer Vacations for Summer 2017

Family Volunteer Vacations

Unplug from smart phones and video games and reach out to the world as a family. Many families tell us that spending a week or two serving in a developing community offers a level of bonding that is hard to come by at home amidst everyone’s busy schedules and technology distractions. In addition, this experience will expand not only your child’s (or grandchild’s) global perspective, but yours as well. Whether age 6 or 96, your life will change in unimaginable ways.
