Travel with Purpose. Be a Global Volunteer. Nurture at-risk children, teach English, assist with health care, plant container gardens, counsel new mothers and pregnant women, repair community buildings, and so much more in 17 countries worldwide.

All our volunteer abroad programs center around helping children reach their full potential.  You’ll work with babies, toddlers, school children, university students, teachers, parents, professionals, community leaders and others who are focused on this goal. The opportunity to join like-minded individuals making a difference in the lives of children and families is a hallmark of our service programs.

Of course, your health and safety are our highest concern.  Trained leaders, 24-hour contact, secure transportation, hotel and community lodging, bottled water, meals in restaurants and prepared by staff cooks, emergency evacuation insurance and working as a team are some of our accommodations to protect you and optimize your contribution.
